lub Brugge winger Antonio Nusa says he has been offered “a lot of money” to join Chelsea this summer.
The Blues were keen to give their rivals a head start by making a late move to sign the 18-year-old last week.
However, a £23million offer has been rejected by the Belgian giants as Chelsea continue to monitor his situation.
Interest in the teenager is likely to be greater when the transfer window reopens in January with as many as 20 clubs eyeing him.
Nusa is a fast and skilful dribbler who plays for the Norway U21 team but has not yet played for the senior national team.
He has made ten appearances this season, scoring one goal and propelling former Celtic coach Ronny Deila’s team through to the group stage of the Europa Conference League.
Speaking to TV2, Nusa said: “I’m in a situation where I want the next step, if it happens, to be something that I’ve really thought through. I want to find out what is right for me. It is important to me. I think about what’s best for me.
“It’s a lot of money. A lot of money. But I try not to think about it too much. I can’t focus on it. I don’t think it’s good for me.”
