Chelsea, HJK Helsinki agree transfer for hot prospect Jimi Tauriainen — reports

16-year-old dynamic left-footed player from Finland

https://weaintgotnohistory.sbnation.com/chelsea-fc-transfer-rumours-news/2020/3/10/21172832/chelsea-hjk-helsinki-agree-transfer-for-hot-prospect-jimi-tauriainen-reports

U16 Finland v U16 Germany - International Friendly

Chelsea are set to add yet another teenager from the Nordic regions of Europe, by reportedly agreeing the transfer of youth prospect Jimi Tauriainen from HJK Helsinki, who turned 16 yesterday.

The transfer will go through on July 1st, when the FIFA registration window opens, but there are pictures of him signing papers with a Chelsea badge in the background, and even holding up a Chelsea shirt while posing with head coach Frank Lampard.

So yeah, probably quite real.

The Finland U16 international has apparently been scouted by many of the bigger teams in Europe, and has had trials with Juventus, Inter Milan, and other unnamed clubs in the UK and Germany. His older brother, Julius, currently plays for Freiburg’s U19 team. Their father is 34-time Finland international Pasi Tauriainen, so very much a footballing family going on there.

The ever-excellent @chelseayouth did some digging on the youngster Tauriainen, and he apparently very much fits the mold of what the Chelsea Academy looks for in a player (obviously): “dynamism, athleticism, technique, end product”. He’s left footed and has played in every position up and down the left flank already — though such positions don’t always matter in the end (e.g. Reece James used to be a striker and didn’t play full/wing-back until just a few years ago).

Tauriainen is the fourth player from the region to agree a transfer to Chelsea in recent months, joining countryman Lucas Bergström, Bryan Fiabema (Norway), and Edwin Andersoon (Sweden). Where we once used to sign ALL the Belgians, now apparently we’re mining the Nordics for talent.

Welcome, soon, Jimi!

If the scouts are looking to the Nordics, I hope they will look into Iceland as well (a little biased). We have some very promising young players coming through!

As long as they leave the Hákarl and Svið at home, and bring plenty of Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur, we all good.
