Chelsea have been linked with a move for young Borussia Dortmund forward Alexander Isak, who is currently on loan at Eredivisie side Willem II.
With Gonzalo Higuain continuing to struggle in the Premier League and Olivier Giroud's growing frustration at his lack of opportunities in spite of his current goalscoring form, Chelsea are in the market for a new centre forward in the summer transfer market, with their transfer ban expected to be delayed until next January.
According to the Daily Mirror, the Blues sent scouts to watch the 19-year-old Swedish sensation in action against Ajax last week, where Isak scored Willem's only goal of the game in a 4-1 defeat.
Here are six things you need to know about Chelsea's next possible number nine.
1. Isak has 13 goals in 13 games for Willem II
Since arriving from Dortmund in January after failing to make a Bundesliga appearance this season, Isak has played in 13 out of a possible 13 matches in all competitions for Willem. In this time, the young Swedish international has scored an astonishing 13 goals, assisting four.
Isak became the first Eredivisie player to do so since Hans Venneker all the way back in 1964/65 and the first player to score in seven consecutive league matches since Tottenham's Vincent Janssen during his time at AZ Alkmaar. Let's hope this isn't a bad omen for Isak's potential Premier League career.
2. First player in Eredivisie history to score three penalties in one match
The 19-year-old's record breaking spell in the Netherlands doesn't stop there. On 30 March, Isak became the first player to score from the spot three times in one Eredivisie match, as Willem beat Fortuna Sittard 3-2.
Isak's first and second spot-kicks were both equalisers, before netting the winner from 12 yards in the 61st minute.
3. The youngest Swedish national team goalscorer in history
In January 2017, Isak was called up to the Swedish first-team squad for two friendly fixtures. After making his debut off the bench against the Ivory Coast, he made his first start against Slovakia four days later, scoring the first goal in Sweden's 6-0 win.
At 17 years, three months and 22 days old, Isak became the youngest goalscorer in his country's history - beating a 105-year-old record.
