As 101 covered on Tuesday, a move to Chelsea looks likely for Santos wonderkid Angelo Gabriel, with the Blues committing to spend €15 million to secure his services and add him to their burgeoning ranks of talented youngsters.
Now, a second Brazilian star is been tipped for a Stamford Bridge switch.
The player in question is Matheus Franca.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea have scheduled a new round of talks for Franca with Brazilian outfit, Flamengo.
In terms of a transfer fee, Romano adds that Chelsea are trying to negotiate for a €20m fee, while Flamengo want at least €25m.
Franca, 19, is a product of Flamengo’s youth system and has so far notched 53 appearances for their senior side. In said games, he has scored nine goals.
The teenager is a natural attacking midfielder but he is also capable of playing on the right-wing.
Like Angelo Gabriel, Franca is not expected to see much first-team action when/if he first makes the move to Stamford Bridge. But Chelsea are putting together quite the group of wonderkids for the future.
