Heerenveen starlet Miralem Sulejmani is flattered to be linked with a move to Chelsea.

Sulejmani is regarded as one of the best young talents in Europe and his performances have caught the attention of a host of clubs.

Chelsea scouts are believed to have watched the 19-year-old in action against Ajax last weekend and Sulejmani impressed by scoring in the game.

Sulejmani has scored 13 goals this season and he is already a full international for Serbia.

The player's agent Mihael Stankovic says Sulejmani is honoured to be linked with Chelsea and admits the playmaker would be interested in a switch to England in the future.

"Miralem is playing very well and a lot of clubs would like to have him," Stankovic told

"A lot of clubs have been watching him and I believe Chelsea did watch him at the weekend.

"I believe clubs from Holland, Spain and Germany have all been watching him.


"He is honoured to be linked with Chelsea as they are one of the biggest clubs in England and Europe.

"Miralem likes English football and like every player he would be interested in moving to the Premier League as it is one of the best leagues in the world.

"He is happy at Heerenveen where he is contracted until 2010 with an option and I believe he should stay at Heerenveen for another year to continue his education."
