Sahar on his way this summer

By Exclusive by Simon Griver, May 20, 2009

Ben Sahar will leave Chelsea next month, we can reveal.

The news comes after we spoke to the Israeli teenager’s agent Ronen Katzav in Israel.

He said: “First Ben has to complete his loan spell with De Graafschap and then he will be ending things with Chelsea. I will fly to London to discuss the many offers we have for him.”

Katzav refused to name any of the clubs interested but Borussia Dortmund and Ajax Amsterdam are among teams linked with the striker.

With Sahar, still only 19, under contract with Chelsea until 2010, the Blues can expect to make a handsome profit on a player they signed from Hapoel Tel Aviv in 2006 for £500,000. Hapoel are entitled to 20 per cent of any transfer fee that Chelsea receive. “Ben will be happy to play in England or Spain, Italy, Germany or Holland,” said Katzav. “The important thing is that he finds the right club.”
