Chelsea have completed the signing of Chizzy Ezenwata, a 15-year-old striker of Nigerian descent, according to TheSecretScout on x.com.
Images of the young striker holding a Chelsea shirt and posing with the club’s officials for a photo shoot have also appeared on social media.
The 15-year-old Chizzy Ezenwata is highly regarded and considered one of the top strikers among his age groups in English football.
Ezenwata joined Chelsea after he had a successful trial with the club during the past few weeks. He is expected to play primarily for the Chelsea Under-16 team this season, where he will continue his development into becoming a professional footballer.
Before joining Chelsea, Chizzy Ezenwata was part of the Charlton Athletic Academy, and he was reported to have turned down a new contract with the South London club.
Signing Chizzy Ezenwata from the Charlton Athletic Academy continues Todd Boehly’s vision of poaching young and talented players from other clubs and developing them into first-team players in the future.
