Premier League champions Chelsea have their eyes on Montreal talent Ballou

MLS: Montreal Impact at Los Angeles Galaxy Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

According to Peter O’Rourke from ESPN FC, Chelsea F.C., and a couple top European clubs are monitoring Montreal Impact young talent Ballou Jean-Yves Tabla for a possible move to Europe.

Chelsea FC and the Montreal Impact do have some sort of connection together as former soccer legend Didier Drogba played for both teams in the past, Drogba mentioned to Chelsea FC the talent and potential in Ballou Jean-Yves Tabla.

Ligue 1 side Lille and Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg are also considering acquiring Tabla, who is under contract until December 2018 with the Impact.

The Montreal Impact know they have a huge talent in Ballou and letting go of him to a top European club for a good sum of money leaves a good image for the team.
