Aleksi Heino, 16, who recently went through a week and a half testing at Chelsea and seven days at Wolfsburg also, has unmistakably dazzled enough to be signed by Chelsea.
The talented forward Aleksi Heino is too young to even consider playing for a senior team, he has already trained with Inter Turku’s reserve team, and the 16-year-old has also represented Finland at the U15 level.
Aleksi Heino plays as a striker, and will be one of the some left-footed players in the current academy positions.
Aleksi Heino is the fifth promising young talent Chelsea have signed from the Nordic area as of late, joining Jimi Tauriainen, Lucas Bergström (both Finland), Bryan Fiabema (Norway) and Edwin Andersson (Sweden).
Best of luck to Aleksi Heino, and may his up and coming journey at Chelsea be a productive one!
