Chelsea are close to agreeing a £13 million deal with Vasco de Gama to sign midfielder Andrey Santos.
Chelsea, according to Le10 Sport, have moved quickly to finalize a deal to sign Santos in the January transfer window, assuming the 18-year-old does not have a last-minute change of heart.
According to the report, Paris Saint-Germain has been keeping an eye on Santos’ performances for several months, while Barcelona and Newcastle United have also been keeping tabs on the 18-year-old.
According to reports, Chelsea’s proposal ‘was considered more consistent with Santos’ expectations’ than PSG’s proposal.
Santos broke into the first team with Vasco de Gama earlier this year.
He’s quickly established himself as a regular in their midfield.
