Chelsea Track Japan Star Hiroshi Kiyotake

Chelsea are tracking Japanese international attacking midfielder Hiroshi Kiyotake who has had an impressive season at Bundesliga club FC Nurnberg.

The 23-year old scored 4 goals and also 10 assists which was good enough for 4th best in the Bundesliga. Chelsea are hoping they can beat Borussia Dortmund to the player's signature.

Chelsea are pondering about a replacement for Marko Marin who joined from Werder Bremen last season and has since made very few appearances for the club with Marin open to a return to Germany.

It is believed that Kiyotake has a release clause of around 16 millions euros but if the right offer came, it would be sure that the clubs would both agree to a lower fee.
