Chelsea are in talks to sign Brazilian wonderkid, Estevao Willian from Palmeiras.

According to The Athletic, Chelsea are confident of striking a deal for the 18-year-old who’s also nicknamed Messinho.

The Brazilian side are ready to accept an offer of €30m base-fee plus performance-related add-ons.

The talented teenager has scored once in five first-team appearances for Palmeiras so far this season.

If Chelsea sign the forward, Messinho would move to the Bridge after turning 18 in April 2025.
