Samuel Iling-Junior: Ex-Chelsea wonderkid impressing at Juventus

The Bianconeri beat off stiff competition to sign the 17-year-old winger in the summer of 2020, and the early signs suggest he has a bright future

There has been a narrative building around Stamford Bridge, though, that the majority of homegrown players need to leave the club if they are to truly blossom at the senior level.

Just this summer, the Blues sold Tammy Abraham to Roma, Fikayo Tomori to AC Milan, Tino Livramento to Southampton and Marc Guehi to Crystal Palace, with all four quickly establishing themselves as consistently strong performers for their new clubs.
