Reports claim Chelsea teenager Martell Taylor-Crossdale will head to Hoffenheim for a medical later this week.

Taylor-Crossdale is yet to make a senior appearance for the west London club but he has caught the eye with his exploits at youth level.

The 19-year-old topped the scoring charts in the under-18 Premier League in 2017 and has netted for England from under-16 to under-20 level, while he also helped England’s under-18s to win the Toulon Tournament in 2017.

Reports claim Chelsea did make Taylor-Crossdale an offer to stay on at Stamford Bridge but he has elected to move on to further his career in the Bundesliga.

It’s understood that he will travel to Germany later this week to undergo a medical ahead of completing a free transfer.
