Chelsea are in pole position ahead of Liverpool to sign PSV Eindhoven winger Zakaria Bakkali, according to reports.

The Belgian international has been heavily linked with a move away from the Phillips Stadion in recent months, following his refusal to sign a new contract with the Eredivisie giants.

According to the Daily Star, sources in Spain have claimed that the Blues are closing in on the promising 18-year-old, with Brendan Rodgers set to come up short.

Bakkali is the youngest Eredivisie player of all-time to score a hat-trick, at the age of 17 years and 196 days against NEC Nijmegen in August 2013.
