New Right Back Coming?
Reports are rife this morning that Chelsea are expected to finalise the £4.5m signing of Brazilian right back Wallace, 18, over the weekend.
His agent Frederico Moraes said: 'There are very advanced negotiations with Chelsea and the signature is almost certain.'
There had been rumours around that Roma could take the player on a temporary basis but this was also ruled out.
'If Wallace goes to Chelsea, he will be playing there,' Moraes added. 'I had contact with Roma and many other Italian clubs, but that was a long time ago.
'I rule out the possibility of a loan [from Chelsea to Roma]. If he joins Chelsea he will play for the Blues.'
I don't know much about this kid, but apparently he's quite exciting for his age!
