Chelsea closing in on deal for midfielder

Chelsea are closing in on a deal to sign Brazilian midfielder Andrey Santos in January.

The 18 year old only made his debut with his Brazilian club Vaso de Gama earlier this year, but has already established himself as a fixture in the centre of their midfield.

And that form has not gone unnoticed by a number of big clubs in Europe, with PSG, Barcelona and Newcastle United amongst those tracking his progress.

However, Chelsea have moved quickly and have beaten their rivals to the punch, and have agreed a deal worth £13 million to sign him. Barring any unforeseen developments in the next few weeks, Santos looks  set to become a Chelsea player shortly.

It looks set to be a busy window at Stamford Bridge, with striker Christopher Nkonku also expected to arrive in West London, having already agreed personal terms on a £52 million move.
