As the opening of the summer transfer window approaches, managers are working hard identifying targets and lining-up potential deals so we’ll bring you all the news and gossip. Today, Chelsea close in on the signature of Nathan….

Chelsea are closing in on the signature of Brazilian starlet Nathan after he arrived in London to undergo a medical ahead of a £4.7m move from Atletico Paranaense, according to reports.

Nathan – full name Nathan Allan De Souza – burst on to the scene with some excellent displays for the Brazilian under-18’s side and has emerged as one of the most exciting young attackers to come out of Brazil.

His potential alerted Chelsea with reports over the weekend in South America claiming that the Blues had struck a deal with Paranaense that was initially believed to be worth in the region of £5.7million with the West Londoners paying an initial £2.1m and a further £3.6m in add ons.

It seems the deal is now edging closer as the Metro are reporting today that Nathan has arrived in England to undergo a medical at Chelsea’s Cobham training base this afternoon.

As long as there are no last minute hiccups, then the 19-year-old is expected to sign a long-term contract – although the Metro believe the fee is actually closer to £4.7million.

It remains to be seen how much truth there is behind these reports but if accurate, then Chelsea are on the verge of signing one of South America’s hottest properties and he’ll link-up with compatriot’s such as Oscar and Willian at Stamford Bridge.

Nathan is an attacking midfielder who can also play on the left wing so he’ll give Jose Mourinho another option in attack if and when he completes his move. However, we’ll have to see where he is granted a work permit as he’s yet to be capped at senior international level for Brazil.

If he’s unable to get a permit, then I expect Nathan will head out on loan to one of Chelsea’s feeder clubs in Europe to gain some experience before trying to qualify for a European passport in order to start his career in England.
