English League One club AFC Wimbledon are said to be ‘pushing hard’ to complete the signing of Chelsea midfielder Luke McCormick, a ‘target’ for Motherwell (Sun).

The Chelsea midfielder spent last season on loan at Bristol Rovers and has captained various youth teams at Stamford Bridge. Motherwell are said to be interested in signing him as part of manager Graham Alexander’s summer recruitment drive.

But Wimbledon are now trying to make sure they win the race for McCormick’s signature, with it being said that the League One club are working round the clock to sign the Chelsea player. Motherwell recently appointed AFC Wimbledon’s former head of recruitment – Nick Daws – in a similar role at Fir Park.

The Lanarkshire side begin their pre-season schedule against Dumbarton on Saturday while Alexander also has another friendly confirmed against Millwall next month. Connor Shields, Justin Amaluzor and Kaiyne Woolery have already completed transfers to the cinch Premiership side.
