According to The Daily Mail, Chelsea have had an offer accepted by Atletico Paranaense for their young Brazilian star Nathan.

The 19-year-old has been a frequent star for the National side at youth level and is currently having contract disagreements with his club and is now considering his options and could well be joining his country team mate Lucas Piazon at Stamford Bridge.

Nathan plays as an attacking midfielder and is gifted with skill and flair. However, his form has dropped recently with many suggesting his future and negotiations have proved to be a distracting feature. Despite this, he is highly rated in his home country and predicted to have a promising future amongst the wrath of young talent coming through the youth ranks in Brazil.

He will definitely be loaned out once signed by Chelsea in a regular occurrence at The Bridge these days with many young players needing to go off and play competitive first team football in order to prove their worth.

The reports say the deal will be completed this summer.
