EPL Chelsea close to signing Santos. Chelsea and Vasco de Gama are nearing an agreement on a $13 million transfer for midfielder Andrey Santos.
Le10 Sport claims that Chelsea has moved rapidly to complete a deal to capture Santos in the January transfer window, barring a last-minute change of heart from the 18-year-old.
According to the report, Barcelona and Newcastle United have also been keeping an eye on the 18-year-old Santos, who has been under observation by Paris Saint-Germain for a number of months.
According to the source, Chelsea’s plan “was judged more aligned with Santos’ expectations” than the PSG concept.
With Vasco de Gama earlier this year, Santos made his debut for the first squad.
At the center of their midfield, he has rapidly established himself as a regular player.
