Bournemouth among clubs eyeing Chelsea youngster Sterling

Bournemouth are among a number of clubs interested in a potential loan deal for Chelsea youngster Dujon Sterling.

Several Championship clubs have been monitoring the 18-year-old, who made his senior debut when he came on as a substitute in Chelsea’s EFL Cup win against Nottingham Forest in September.

But a Premier League loan move could yet be an option, with Bournemouth now showing some interest.

The Cherries previously took Nathan Ake on loan from the Blues and have since signed him on a permanent basis.

Sterling, who can play as a right-back or further forward, has impressed for Chelsea’s development side.

He also caught the eye for England’s European Under-19 Championship-winning team during the summer.

Last month he signed a five-year contract at Stamford Bridge.
