Chelsea targeting Malinovskyi

Atalanta midfielder Ruslan Malinovskyi has already attracted interest from Premier League side Chelsea, claim reports in Ukraine.

The 26-year-old only came to Bergamo over the summer for €13.7m, although KRC Genk also retained the right to 10 per cent of his next transfer fee.

He has made eight appearances for the club this season between Serie A and the Champions League.

It is on international duty where Malinovskyi seems to have impressed scouts the most, scoring both goals in his country’s 2-0 victory over Lithuania last week, also shining in their win with Portugal.

According to, Chelsea have set their sights on Malinovskyi and was recommended to the club by former player Claude Makelele.
