Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has confirmed the Blues have a good chance of signing teenage Brazilian attacker Endrick.

Romano told Givemesport: “The three clubs are fighting and Chelsea are in the race. They want to try and they want to discuss.

“Palmeiras want €60million. That is the value of the release clause, but they could accept a different kind of structure of the deal with the package, including add-ons and bonuses.

“Remember the player would be joining in 2024, so it’s a long-term project around Endrick and not a short-term project, but Chelsea are there.

“They have a chance to sign Endrick. As of today, yes, but it could change in a day because there are three clubs fighting for Endrick and there are also many rumours about Barcelona and Manchester United.”

Having scored 165 goals in 169 appearances for Palmeiras’ academy side, Endrick has taken to senior football like a duck to water.

He has scored three goals and registered an assist in just 306 minutes of action for the Palmeiras first-team.
