Ampadu has long been regarded as a thrilling young prospect but the buzz around him has increased recently. He earned widespread plaudits for his commanding performance in Wales’ 4-1 win over Ireland in the UEFA Nations League earlier this month.

Antonio Conte called the Exeter City academy product “the future of Chelsea” last season, and he has been described in the same terms by Maurizio Sarri, who said he was “very, very happy” to have secured him to a new long-term contract last week.
