Altinordu goalkeeper Berke Ozer has revealed he is seeking to leave the Turkish club in the near future.
Chelsea coaches Eddie Newton and Christophe Lollichon watched the 17 year old last month in Altinordu’s 2-0 defeat to Gaziantep FK, but BeIn Sports are reporting that Manchester City and Juventus are also interested in the stopper.
Asked by BeIn Sports (translated by Turkish-football.com) about the interest being shown in him, Ozer said:
“I want to play in the Premier League, La Liga or Serie A…This will probably be one of my last interviews in Turkey.”
The Turkish Under 17 international has reportedly impressed Blues scouts, and according to Ajansspor, the London club will make a decision at the end of the season about whether to sign the player.
Ozer played for Turkey at the Under 17 World Cup back in October, playing all three group games before they were knocked out of the tournament.
For his club side Altinordu, due to international commitments, the keeper missed a number of league games, but returned in November to make three consecutive league starts. He was then however benched for the club’s last three matches before the international break.
