Chelsea splash £68m for high-rated Nigeria striker as he arrives London to undergo medical on his possible move to Stamford Bridge

Vasco da Gama midfielder Andrey Santos is heading to Chelsea, according to Globo.

The 18-year-old, who is regarded as one of the best midfield prospects in Brazil, made his first-team breakthrough at Vasco earlier this year.

Top clubs in Europe, including Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, Newcastle United and Manchester City are interested in landing the player.

But Globo reports that the Blues have now agreed to pay Vasco a €20 million (£17.5m) fee to sign the young midfielder.

The midfielder, according to the report, is now headed to London to undergo a medical and sign a contract.

Santos has represented Brazil’s national side at under-16 and under-20 level.

Chelsea could be in the market for new midfielders next summer as both Jorginho and N’Golo Kante see their contracts expire at the end of the season
