Chelsea FC are interested in Borussia Dortmund striker Alexander Isak but face competition from Real Madrid, according to a report in England.

The Sun is reporting that the Blues are admirers of the young Swedish striker who has aptly been dubbed the “next Zlatan Ibrahimovic”.

The same article states that Chelsea FC are looking at potential signings in the striker department given uncertainty surrounding Olivier Giroud’s future at the club.

According to the same story, the west London side have already sent scouts to watch the Swedish teenager in action for the German side.

However, the Sun reports that La Liga giants Real Madrid are also interested in Isak, who has already amassed four caps for the Swedish national team.

The promising forward has scored one goal in 13 games in all competitions for Dortmund since his move to the Bundesliga club in 2016.

Dortmund signed Isak in the 2017 January transfer window and the German side were rumoured to have paid a fee of around €9m for the teenager.

Chelsea FC are facing uncertainty surrounding Eden Hazard, Olivier Giroud, Gonzalo Higuain and Callum Hudson-Odoi in the summer.

The Blues lost 2-0 to Premier League leaders Liverpool FC at Anfield on Sunday to damage their chances of finishing in the top four.
