Chelsea are firmly expected to complete the signing of Wallace Oliveira dos Santos, normally just known as Wallace, in a deal thought to be around £4.5m in the coming week.
The deal was originally thought to include the Brazilian youth international being loaned back to Fluminense but recent reports claim that Chelsea will be keeping the player at Stamford Bridge for the foreseeable future.
Wallace´s agent Frederico Moraes said: ‘There are very advanced negotiations with Chelsea and the signature is almost certain.’
‘If Wallace goes to Chelsea, he will be playing there, I had contact with Roma and many other Italian clubs, but that was a long time ago.
‘I rule out the possibility of a loan. If he joins Chelsea he will play for the Blues.’
Its good to see Chelsea still looking to invest in raw young talents such as Wallace, and I hope to see this move and more finalised soon. We like talented Brazilians!
