Chelsea are reportedly in advanced discussions over the signing of Fulham wonderkid Luke Harris.
Harris has enjoyed a meteoric rise to prominence in recent months, with his performances with the Cottagers earning him a call-up to Wales’ first team for the first time this month ahead of their Nations League fixtures.
While he was an unused substitute as Belgium beat Wales 2-1 on Thursday, Metro UK reports the youngster is in line to earn his first full Wales cap when they face Poland on Sunday.
An appearance against Poland will afford him a golden chance to audition for his proposed move to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea pushing to sign Luke Harris in January
According to The Mirror, Chelsea have been in ‘advanced discussions’ with Fulham over signing Harris during the upcoming transfer window.
The deal would reportedly cost the Blues an eyewatering £30m, with £5m of the fee being add-ons.
The development comes just weeks after the teenage sensation penned a new contract at Craven Cottage until 2025.
Harris has previously earned praise from Fulham boss Marco Silva, who vowed to help him through his development.
"Now we have to help him grow as a player. He will have his time in the first team, because he has the quality," Silva was quoted saying.
The Jersey-born striker made his first senior appearance for Fulham against Crawley Town in the Carabao Cup last month.
