The Blues agreed to a deal with the talented Brazilian player.

Chelsea have agreed a contract with Palmeiras for 17-year-old attacker Estêvão Willian.

The Blues have beaten off competition from some of Europe’s biggest teams to agree on a transfer for 37 million dollars with additional add-ons, as the sum can be up to 67 million dollars.

The winger is labeled as 1 of the best young talents in his native Brazil but, should the deal be completed, Willian will not join the west London team until 2025.

The team has prioritized inking young footballers ever since Todd Boehly became the owner of the Blues 2 years ago, with Chelsea investing more than 1 billion pounds since the takeover.

Chelsea signed a lot of players from South America over the last 2 years. Andrey Santos and Kendry Páez inked with the Blues in the past year, while Thiago Silva will leave the team to return to Fluminense after the final game of their EPL campaign tomorrow.
