The Daily Express are reporting that Chelsea fight Barcelona to sign Bayer Leverkusen wonderkid Atakan Akkaynak.
The midfielder is regarded as one of Germany’s top young talents and has been scouted by a number of top clubs over the last few months.
Chelsea are now looking to make a move for the young midfielder in January after missing out on a number of high-profile players in the summer.
It is believed that Barcelona are also ready to make a move after watching him for a number of years.
Akkaynak is under contract until 2019 and are believed to be ready to cash in on him as they do not believe they can compete with the big clubs financially.
