DEJAN KULUSEVSKI has dealt the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham a blow after revealing he’s a fan of Chelsea.
The 19-year-old playmaker – who has been heavily linked with a switch to the Premier League – is believed to be available for around £40million.
The Swedish international has starred on loan at Parma from fellow Serie A side Atalanta this season.
In 13 Italian top-flight games, Kulusevski has chipped in with three goals and five assists.
And along with being targeted by the Gunners, Red Devils and Spurs, Tuttosport claim that he is also being chased by Juventus and Inter Milan.
But in what could be a blow for potential suitors, the midfielder has revealed that he follows the Blues.
Speaking to Swedish news outlet Fotbollskanalen, Kulusevski declared that he’s a fan of his local side Hammarby, but Chelsea are his team outside of his home country.
Chelsea haven’t been linked with a move for the teenager, but could look to bring him to Stamford Bridge when their transfer ban is lifted.
Despite interest in him, the player has conceded he is happy at Parma and isn’t thinking about a move away in the New Year.
He said: “I’m fine at Parma, I’m happy to be here, I’ve found the perfect club.
“The market? I’m playing well, so it’s normal to write about other clubs, but I don’t think about (a January move) because I have an annual deal with Parma.”
