Chelsea have made a bid for FC Tokyo’s Japan international striker Yoshinori Muto, his club has claimed
Muto who is 22 recently graduated from Keio University after completing an economics degree, represented Japan during the Asian Cup in January
The bid from the Blues is reported to be around £4m and a spokesman for the Japanese club said:
“It is true that we have received an official offer from Chelsea for Muto. But nothing has been decided.”
He struck 13 goals last year and was named in the J-League’s best XI.
Muto told the Japanese press:
“I’m honoured to receive an offer from this wonderful team, but I have not made any decision yet.”
