Report: Brazilian teenager with 'mesmerising dribbling' ability is the 'next' player on Todd Boehly's wishlist to sign for Chelsea

Reports suggest Chelsea are interested in adding Brazilian striker Endrick as another young signing this summer.

According to The Athletic, the 16-year-old is the next young name on the wishlist for Chelsea’s owners, with them already securing a number of names during the window.

Todd Boehly maintained the club’s prior interest in Gabriel Slonina from Chicago Fire, eventually getting a deal over the line which will allow the MLS side to keep him on loan for the remainder of their domestic season.

They followed up this acquisition with the signing of Carney Chukwuemeka from Aston Villa, with Thomas Tuchel seeing the youngster as capable of providing for the first team as soon as this season.

Now, The Athletic believe that the club’s next target is Endrick, as the new owners continue to try and build a squad for the future.

Boehly wants Endrick

The Brazilian has captured the attention of people all around football for his outstanding talent at Palmeiras.

His dribbling ability has been praised in particular for his dribbling ability, with it being described as ‘mesmerising.’

The 16-year-old will be looking up to prior Chelsea target Gabriel Jesus as a role model, with him being the last promising forward to come out of the Brazilian side.

Chelsea fans will be delighted that Boehly has been insistent on investing in the future, despite understanding the task at hand when looking to compete with Liverpool and Manchester City this season.

This has been proven with the American in particular playing a key role in the signings of Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly earlier this summer, with them both set to make their debut this weekend against Everton.

They may well be able to add Marc Cucurella to their ranks, after confirming a deal to sign the Spaniard today and registering him in time for tomorrow’s fixture.
