Chelsea are set to beat Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund to the signature of German U-17 international Julian Brandt, reports The Daily Star.

Brandt, 17, who currently plays for German side Wolfsburg in the Bundsliga, has recently rejected a new long term contract extension to stay at the Volkswagen Arena, but has decided to honour his current contract which expires at the end of this season, where he will then be a free agent.

“Julian Brandt has turned down the offer to sign a new contract with VfL Wolfsburg,” a Wolfsburg spokesperson told Deutsche Presseagentur.

“As he is out of contract at the end of the campaign, Julian Brandt will therefore depart from VfL Wolfsburg.”

If Mourinho were to sign the young striker, Brandt will be the fifth German to represent The Blues after, Robert Huth, Michael Ballack, Marko Marin and André Schürrle.
