Chelsea & Liverpool To Do Battle For French Youngster Ibrahima Tandia

According to a report emanating from Sky Sports, Premier League rivals Chelsea and Liverpool are keeping tabs on French youngster Ibrahima Tandia.

The 15-year-old striker, who currently plays for Ligue 1 outfit Sochaux's Under-16 side, is being hailed as one of France's most promising starlets.

It is claimed that both the Blues and the Reds have sent scouts to watch the France U-16 international in action at the upcoming Montaigu Tournament.

However, it is thought that Tandia has already turned down approaches from Chelsea and Liverpool because he is concerned that they do not focus enough attention on nurturing youngsters.

Apparently, the teenager favours a move to Tottenham Hotspur, although he insists he is not thinking about a transfer abroad at present.

"I am at Sochaux; I don't have anything to say about these links," Tandia is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"Let me enjoy my Montaigu Tournament. Sochaux's officials are the ones you need to talk to."
