According to The Guardian, Chelsea were close to signing the Southampton prodigy Luke Shaw last year, but eventually backed out of the transfer.
Shaw, 17, is another youngster who came out of the famous Southampton academy, which has also produced the likes of Alan Shearer, Theo Walcott, Gareth Bale, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
The 17-year-old is an attacking left-back with fantastic dribbling ability and ball control, which combined with his extraordinary pace, makes him a perfect replacement for the seemingly outgoing Ashley Cole.
This season might be Shaw's first in the Premier League, but the youngster has already shown he is more than capable of playing at the highest level.
However, there haven't really been any newer reports linking Shaw with a switch to Stamford Bridge.
