October 22, 2017

Premier League duo Chelsea and Manchester City continue their pursuit of Europe’s finest young talents, and as the reports claim they have entered the race for Maxen Kapo, nephew of former France international Olivier Kapo.

According to Nabil Djellit of France Football, Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester City, and Bundesliga duo Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig have all approached the entourage of PSG forward Kapo, to start negotiations over a potential move.

An advanced striker able to play anywhere across the forward line, Kapo is a French youth international and another off PSG’s talent production line. Every year the Ligue 1 side have to fight to hold on to their academy gems, and in recent years have lost the likes of Dan-Axel Zagadou to Borussia Dortmund, and Moussa Dembélé to Fulham, who is now at The Scotland champions Celtic.

Three of their youngsters who have stuck around are now involved in the first team squad – Adrien Rabiot, Presnel Kimpembe and Alphonse Areola.

It remains to be seen which category Kapo will fall under, but with the clubs likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund on his case, the Parisiens may fight with their hands to keep hold of the young prodigy.
