Chelsea are hoping to add two more talented teenagers to their squad with moves for Benfica’s Lazar Markovic and Inter Milan’s Pedro Delgado.

The Blues committed Burkina Faso 18-year-old Bertrand Traore to a four-and-a-half year deal last week and boss Jose Mourinho is keen to continue to bolster his youth ranks by raiding two of his former clubs.

Midfielder Delgado, 16, only joined Inter this summer from Portuguese outfit Portimonense but has already caught the eye of several of Mourinho’s scouts back in Italy.

Nineteen-year-old Markovic is far more established – he has already been capped by Serbia and is a long-term target for the Blues.

The winger joined Benfica in the summer but has hinted in the past that he would be keen on a move to the Premier League.
