Chelsea to rival Arsenal, Liverpool, West Ham to young Ajax goalkeeping duo

TEAMtalk can confirm that Chelsea are keeping close tabs on English goalkeeping brothers Charlie and Tommy Setford.

Charlie, 19, and Tommy, 17, both play for Ajax having been born close to the Dutch capital. The pair are the sons of a former pro-golfer who lived in the Netherlands, but despite spending all their lives living there, they both have chosen to represent England.

Charlie is yet to make his senior debut but is part of the first-team set-up and has been included in Eredivisie and Champions League squads. The 19-year-old has featured for England at Under-18 level, whilst Tommy – who is part of Ajax’s Under-18 squad – recently featured for England at the Under-17 World Cup.

Charlie’s contract in the Netherlands runs until 2027 whilst Tommy will have a year left on his current deal come the end of the 2023-24 season.

TEAMtalk can now reveal that a number of English clubs are keeping close tabs on the Setford’s with Chelsea looking at both.

TEAMtalk also understand that Arsenal, Liverpool and West Ham have been looking closely at Charlie, whilst Tottenham and Newcastle have been doing their work on Tommy.
