There is already a strong Brazilian representation in Chelsea’s squad with the likes of Oscar, Filipe Luis, Willian, Ramires and loanees Lucas Piazon and Wallace Oliveira. According to reports, they’re now looking to add a couple more highly rated youngsters to the squad this summer.
The first is Fluminese striker Robert Kenedy. The 19-year-old was previously linked with Manchester United and has already been labelled ‘The new Neymar’. It is expected that Chelsea are already discussing a fee of around £5 million for him, which will be money needed by his Brazilian club.
The second is another player surrounded by excitement, midfielder Nathan de Souza from Atletico Paranaense. The 18-year-old has featured alongside Kenedy through the Brazilian youth International sides and they both currently turn out for the Brazil Under 20s. Nathan is also said to be available for around £5 million.
