Chelsea are closing in on their second signing of the January transfer window after agreeing a fee with Metalist Kharkiv for midfielder Taison, according to Sky Sports.

Fanbet

The report claims the Brazilian held talks with the European champions after making a visit to West London earlier this month and has now agreed personal terms over a move to Stamford Bridge.

Taison joined Metalist from Internacional two-and-a-half years ago and has been a huge hit with the Ukrainian outfit, scoring 20 goals in his 83 appearances so far.

Sky Sports understand that Metalist are reluctant to sell the attacking midfielder but are believed to have finally decided to cash-in after agreeing a fee with Chelsea for the 24-year-old, and the Londoners are said to be keen to push through the deal soon to make him their second January addition after signing Demba Ba last week.

However, Sky also claim an unnamed Premier League club has made a late bid to try and gazump Chelsea and have made an approach to Metalist for Taison.

If he does seal a move to Chelsea, Taison will have a familiar face to help him settle at Stamford Bridge after playing alongside Oscar during their time with Internacional in Brazil.

While he’s predominantly regarded as an attacking midfielder, Taison is a versatile player who can play on the wing’s as well as up front so he will certainly give boss Rafa Benitez plenty of options if he does end up at Chelsea this month.

    He is a young lad with good talent.I like what chelsea are doing in the transfer market.we’v got alot of young and enrgetic skillful player,few years to come we’ll have a good strong big team that will challenge for glory.getting them in a decent transfer fee and wages are what i love most compared how we bought Essient,Drogba,Ballack,shevy,crespo etc.its very Interestin in this period of Financial fair play.
    But pls stop sacking managers because it really affectd this players adaptation.

    Chelsea is doing great singing young and talented players.Taison is a quality and superb signing for chelsea. Player like Isco can also fit into chelsea squad. But Chelsea need to change the atitude of sacking coaches this time.
