In a story first reported by Twitter account @TheSecretScout_, Bayern Munich is planning another heist from Chelsea FC’s youth academy.

The Bavarians recently had 16-year-old Emran Soglo on campus for a trial and the club came away impressed with the midfielder, who can play the 8, 10, or on the wing. SPOX and Goal reporter Kerry Hau added more context to the initial report:

The #FCBayern bearings - as first from @TheSecretScout_reported - an obligation of #Chelsea -Talent Emran #Soglo is on. The 16-year-old offensive player (born in 2005) trained with the U17 on a trial basis last week and has been training with the U19s since this week.

Hau added more information as well:

The first impression on the Soglo campus: positive. The left footer is described as intelligent and strong in one-on-one, can play on the eight, ten and outside lanes. A decision about a transfer should be made in the next few days. Soglo wants to go to FCB.

Bayern Munich, of course, made out well with Jamal Musiala, who was signed from Chelsea’s academy and looks like a burgeoning star. The Bavarians also have defensive prospect Bright Arrey-Mbi on campus as well after his move from Chelsea in 2019.
