Manchester City and Chelsea looking at Chile talent Dario Osorio - report
Some of the Premier League’s top clubs are said to be scouting Chilean wonderkid Dario Osorio this season, according to 90min.
The 18-year-old is considered to be one of Chile’s top emerging talents and is being compared to compatriot Alexis Sanchez for his rise to stardom.
Wolves are said to be leading the race to sign the youngster, however, giants Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea are all rumoured to be keeping a keen eye on the starlet.
The report states Real Madrid, Barcelona, Inter, Lyon, Brentford and Leicester are also interested in signing the Chilean.
Osorio’s fine form earned him a call-up to the Chilean national team for recent fixtures against Morocco and Qatar, however, he didn’t feature.
Despite that, the 18-year-old played his part against England U20s when they met Chile in the Costa Calida Supercup tournament in Spain.
Wolves are leading the chase to sign the youngster, so it may not be long before we see the talented starlet pitting it out against the best in the Premier League.
Osorio may just be the player Wolves need to spearhead their attack; he’s direct, fast and loves to move forward with the ball.
The left-footed winger stands at a menacing 6ft, an attribute that would do him favours in the physical and tough Premier League.
Nevertheless, he’d be an asset to any Premier League team, he’s young and has the time to adapt and progress before really stamping his authority in the league.
He’ll be a real coup for whoever manages to capture his signature; there are reasons behind every top side in Europe keeping a close eye on his progression.
It will be interesting to see if Wolves can manage to fight off Europe’s elite; Osorio is a star in the making.
