This man is a absolute beast. This guy has RLC potential. I remember the time when RLC was destroying youth matches and I became one of his biggest fans when he was 16 years old. This guy is 17 years old and he has so much potential. He is a physical beast of a man. He and RLC have a very similar physique and their technique is also on point. Anjorin is a very technical player that can score goals and he is a no. 10 type of player, while RLC is a no. 8. Anjorin is fast, can score goals, makes very good passes and he is more creative than RLC( does not mean that RLC is not creative, but he is more creative than RLC) and his stamina seems pretty decent. This guy is ready for PL action. He has all the tools to make it at Chelsea.. He can improve on his shooting a little bit more (he should have scored one more goal tonight), but with that kind of potential, you need to give him a chance either in PL or loan him out to a Championship team. He is too good for this U23 team. I am not saying that he should be a starter, but he should be an option for the bench once in a while and give him a chance against lower teams, when we are up with two or more goals. Sadly, he was injured two or three months last season.

My dream is it to see both RLC and Anjorin on the same pitch.

Serie A club Napoli are exploring ways to sign Chelsea starlet Faustino Anjorin in the January transfer window, according to various reports emanating from the Italian press including calcionapoli1926.it. Napoli are in the market for a midfielder, with new coach Gennaro Gattuso preferring to line-up in a 4-3-3 formation and the Chelsea whizkid has been identified as a possible reinforcement.
 
Anjorin shares the same agent as Jeremie Boga, who is also attracting interest from Napoli ahead of the reopening of the transfer window and during one of the meetings, Napoli sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli was informed about the England U19 international.
The 2001-born box-to-box midfielder has been at Chelsea for over ten years, first joining their development center at U7 level before officially signing a contract at U9 level.
 
He made his first team debut for the Blues in a League Cup clash against Grimsby Town on September 25 this year, replacing Pedro in the 67th minute and became the youngest player of Nigerian descent to debut for Chelsea in a domestic competition aged 17 years, 10 months and 2 days. Earlier this year, Anjorin was on the radar of Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and OGC Nice He won the FA Youth Cup, U18 Premier League and U18 Premier League Cup with Chelsea in the 2017-2018 season.

The one really good performance I've seen from Tino so far this season was his cameo against Grimsby. When he's good, he's breath-taking but ever since April 2018, when I predicted he'd be the next big thing to come out of the academy, I've more often been disappointed by him than I've been impressed. Far, far too much upside to give up on him however. I don't know his contractual situation but, hopefully the club can get that sorted and then only consider loan offers from Napoli, or anyone else.

Great news. I just don’t see how with the plethora of AMs at the club he will have a pathway unless we sell someone 

You'd love to keep them all but we can only console ourselves with the hope that the competition for squad places will help drive up the overall quality.

I wonder what games they have been watching. Such an average Talent. Hard worker, great attitude but I doubt he will ever be worth those 100m

I would sell him right now if someone gives us 100 million for him. 
So that figure is ridicules to me. 
We will never get anything close to that ever again lol. He will struggle against the likes of RLC

We would not even get that money for him. If we put him up for sale, everyone would be like „there is something wrong with him“ and try to lowball us. Also it would send the wrong signal after he has been busting a bit the whole season for us desperately wanting to make it here.

Chelsea’s breakthrough star – Tino Anjorin

https://theathletic.com/2034881/2020/09/02/chelsea-breakthrough-star-tino-anjorin-frank-lampard/

CFC-Tino-BreakthroughStar-1024x683.jpg

If 2019 will be remembered as the year Chelsea finally embraced its all-conquering academy, 2020 is shaping up to be something much more familiar in the Roman Abramovich era. A spectacular spending spree, targeting some of Europe’s most coveted players, is raising expectations at Stamford Bridge back towards the level of serious domestic and European contention.

There is every reason to think that Mason Mount, Reece James, Tammy Abraham, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Billy Gilmour and Fikayo Tomori will continue to figure prominently in Frank Lampard’s thoughts, even as the transfer market supercharges his attempts to build the next great Chelsea team. For the next wave of youngsters across the road at Cobham, slightly too young to benefit from the happy confluence of a transfer ban and a manager inclined to trust youth, circumstances going into 2020-21 look less favourable in the short term.

But if we are to witness another Chelsea academy prospect break through in a meaningful way this season, the smart money would be on it being Tino Anjorin. Sources have told The Athletic that unless a loan offer emerges in this window that is too good to turn down, he is inclined to remain around the first-team squad and compete for minutes on the pitch with Lampard’s high-profile signings and established academy graduates.

It is a mark of just how highly rated Anjorin is throughout Europe in youth circles that he was included in the long list for the 2020 edition of Tuttosport’s prized Golden Boy award despite playing just 42 senior minutes for Chelsea last season, including an eye-catching cameo in a 7-1 rout of Grimsby Town in the third round of the Carabao Cup in September. Six months later, he made his Premier League debut as a substitute in a 4-0 home win over Everton, when he was one sure touch away from a goal.

Gilmour, enjoying the final minutes of his second midfield masterclass in the space of a week, won the ball deep in the Everton half and darted towards the penalty area. He showed the presence of mind to draw Michael Keane towards him before sliding the ball to his left, where Anjorin was hovering unmarked. The 18-year-old, whose first contribution to the match a few minutes earlier had been to try to volley in a dropping ball from 30 yards, couldn’t dream of a better chance to score.

Instead, his first touch allowed the ball to drift away to his left, moments before Djibril Sidibe wiped him out with a clean sliding recovery challenge that doubled as a classic “Welcome to the Premier League” moment. On the evidence of Anjorin’s broader body of work throughout the youth levels, it’s hard to imagine defenders being granted such opportunities for redemption in the future.

Watch any compilation of his goals and what strikes you is not simply the composure of the finishing, but also the variety. Anjorin scores virtually every type of goal from any range with either foot, though it’s fair to say he hasn’t yet shown himself a dominant aerial presence despite his muscular 6ft 1in frame. He specialises in driving into the box with the ball at his feet or arriving there without it at the right time and place to get himself a scoring chance. Once there, he generally favours precision over power.

Much like most of Lampard’s “Class of ’19”, Anjorin started his professional football journey at Cobham. He was signed as an eight-year-old after being spotted by Graham Castle, Chelsea’s scout on the south coast who was also responsible for bringing Mount and Dominic Solanke to the club. Anjorin’s father Sheriff, a former academy prospect at Brighton and non-League footballer, approached the choice of which club to entrust with his talented son cautiously, but was won over by the quality of the facilities and the impressive operation run by Neil Bath.

The moment that marked Anjorin out internationally as one of Europe’s elite prospects came much later, with England Under-18s against Russia at the Limoges Tournament in 2018. Receiving the ball on the right flank against Russia, he comfortably shielded it from his marker, worked his way infield and then lashed a shot with his left foot into the top far corner from 25 yards. He ended the competition as top scorer and was voted best player, the star of a victorious squad that featured Mason Greenwood and Bukayo Saka.

Injuries have slowed his lightning progress towards senior football since. Anjorin, like Ruben Loftus-Cheek before him, had to adjust to a sudden growth spurt in his mid-teens and is still learning how best to manage his imposing body. He employed a personal fitness consultant and followed a bespoke workout programme over the summer of 2019 to ensure he would come into the new season in prime condition, having missed a chunk of the previous campaign with a back injury.

Chelsea have been careful to manage Anjorin’s workload, employing the lessons learnt from Loftus-Cheek’s lengthy ordeal with injuries. But he has still been dominant in every youth competition and far more involved in first-team training under Lampard than predecessor Maurizio Sarri, who only called him up for one session during his year at Cobham.

The comparison with Loftus-Cheek is immediately obvious, but reductive. Anjorin is a very different player with a unique set of attributes that makes him capable of dominating the heart of midfield, imposing himself in the penalty area or thriving on either wing. His skill, strength and speed at such a young age — he isn’t 19 until November — suggest he has the rare potential to blossom into a complete modern footballer.

It is not even entirely clear yet what Anjorin’s best position will prove to be at senior level. Such versatility can be a detriment to development, as Ethan Ampadu has found over the last two years, but in this particular situation, the consequence may be more positive; Lampard has so many midfield and attacking options at his disposal now that Anjorin’s ability to fit in different possible combinations can only be preferable to needing a specific set of tactical circumstances to get a chance.

Anjorin believes he will get one. His decision to sign a new five-year contract, announced in June, was a statement of faith in Lampard as much as Chelsea to manage the next stages of his development. He can also take plenty of inspiration from the huge strides that Mount, Abraham and Hudson-Odoi have made over the last 18 months. The presence of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz will make his own path more difficult, but he has the talent to ensure the Stamford Bridge youth movement goes on.
