Sky Sports are reporting that Deivid Washington has completed his Chelsea medical, meaning a move from Santos to the Blues can now be completed.
The young striker has been a revelation in the Brazilian top flight, and now gets the chance to make an impact in Europe.
The deal will cost the Blues €20m, and the good news is that fans of Santos are annoyed that he’s going so cheap. Unlike with Angelo Gabriel, whom we signed earlier this summer, there seems to be a lot of hype from their fans around Washington.

The 18 year old is likely to head directly to Strasbourg on loan once the deal is done, taking up another of our foreign loan spots, but allowing him the chance to make an instant impact on European football playing for Patrick Vieira’s team.
Good luck out there Deivid – there’s certainly a spot for you in Chelsea’s main squad if you do well.
