The 23-year-old is considered to be one of the best wingers in Kosovo.

As a member of Kosovo national football team, Zeneli won 15 caps and he scored 6 goals.

His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Chelsea.


The report claims that Chelsea manager has extensively scouted Zeneli and is considering a move for the winger.


Zeneli would provide a good variety to Chelsea’s attack.

According to Football Oranje (via Sky Sports), “Chelsea are among the clubs interested in signing Heerenveen winger Arber Zeneli. The Kosovo international has been in great form for Heerenveen this season, contributing ten assists and five goals. This form has turned the attention of several big clubs and according to Sky Sports, Chelsea will send scouts to watch Zeneli take on Ajax this Sunday. According to Sky Sports, Galatasaray are also interested in the winger, who they believe would cost around €5.5 million. The 23-year-old is only contracted in Friesland until the summer but Heerenveen can extend it for another year. They are said to be open to a transfer in order to receive a high fee for the attacker.”


If Chelsea are genuinely interested, a deal would not be impossible to complete.

Undoubtedly Arber Zeneli would be a fantastic recruit for Chelsea.
