The 16-year-old midfielder, who has Bosnian roots, reckons he turned down offers from several English clubs after leaving Swedish side Larje-Angereds IF.

Now he harbours ambitions of playing Premier League football with Carlo Ancelotti's men in the near future.

Osmanovic, speaking to Swedish daily paper Aftonbladet, said: "As I want to become an even better footballer I knew that I had to leave Sweden and move abroad.

"I had a lot of offers from England but in the end I chose Chelsea.

"The difference between Sweden and England is enormous and I have no doubt that I will continue my development in the right way.

"I think I will be ready to play in the Premier League in two years' time."
