The Brazilian Press have today been reporting that Chelsea have bid €9.6m for Botafogo central defender Doria.
If the move goes ahead, Doria would join fellow countrymen David Luiz, Oscar, Ramires, Lucas Piazon and Wallace at Stamford Bridge.
Lancenet report that Botafogo have until Friday night to respond to the offer for their highly rated 18 year old defender.
Doria was recently voted Defender of the Tournament, captaining his u-20 Brazil side to victory in the Toulon Tournament.
