Chelsea still keen on Adu
Freddy Adu
Adu has made his debut for the USA
Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck insists the club is keen to buy Freddy Adu.

The Ghana-born American teenager is currently playing in Major League Soccer for DC United but the club have indicated he could be available at the end of the year.

Frank Arnesen, Chelsea's head of development and scouting, is likely to be the man who determines whether Chelsea bid for Adu, who has already made his full international debut for the USA.

Buck is happy to let Arnesen - acquired from Tottenham last summer - determine whether Adu is good enough to make an impact in the Premiership.

"We are interested in any young top-notch player," said Buck.

"That's why we brought Frank Arnesen on board and I'm sure Frank has watched him play and is looking at him.

"If he's as good as people say he is, then I think we would be interested."
