Chelsea confirmed on Tuesday that the club has reached an agreement with Aston Villa for their buzzing teenager Carney Chukwuemeka.
Chelsea’s deal for Chukwuemeka is believed to be worth an initial £15m, and other clauses could make the fee rise to above £20m.
A statement from Chelsea read: “Aston Villa and Chelsea can confirm that the clubs have reached an agreement for the permanent transfer of Carney Chukwuemeka.
“The 18-year-old has been given permission to travel to London to discuss both personal terms and undergo a medical.”
Chukwuemeka is now in London to complete the deal.
The teenage sensation was linked with a move to Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund, but Chelsea seemed to have pulled this one out of the blues.
