Reports have claimed Chelsea have made a bid for FC Tokyo’s Japan international striker Yoshinori Muto.
The striker, 22, who only graduated two weeks ago from Keio University after completing an economics degree, represented Japan during the Asian Cup in January and has retained his place in the squad under new coach Vahid Halilhodzic.
And the Sky Sports website says the Blues have offered around£4 million to try and get a deal done.
A spokesman for the Japanese club said: “It is true that we have received an official offer from Chelsea for Muto. But nothing has been decided.”
