Chelsea and United chasing Stoke youngster

Chelsea and Manchester United are set to go head-to-head in the race to sign Stoke City Emre Tegel, who has been dubbed the next Harry Kane.

The striker has enjoyed a meteoric rise through the Stoke academy system, playing regularly for their under-18 side last season, despite being only 15 at the time.

He is being compared to the England captain because of his movement, ability to hold the ball up, and also is able to withstand the knocks that comes with playing in the position.

However, what has really caught the eye of the watching clubs, which also includes Manchester City, is his knack of putting the ball in the net.

Given that he is still only 16, he will not be able to sign a professional contract yet with any club,  so would likely to join their youth set-ups, with the chance of first-team action still some way in the future for the teenager.
