Chelsea's youth recruitment drive looks set to continue as they close in on another Brazilian wonderkid named Robert Kenedy.

The Fluminense forward has also attracted interest from Manchester United and Inter Milan, but according to the Daily Telegraph the Blues are confident of winning the race for the 19-year-old's signature.

Despite his tender age, Kenedy has made over 20 first-team appearances for his current club and has also featured at youth international level for his country.

He first caught the eye of European scouts at the U17 South America Championships in 2013 where he finished the tournament as Brazil's top goalscorer with six goals.

Compared in playing style to Zenit St Petersburg's Hulk thanks to his remarkable physical strength, the talented teenager has already declared his desire to play in the Premier League.

However, Kenedy will probably have to wait patiently for a chance to show what he can do at Stamford Bridge, given the array of attacking talent already available to Jose Mourinho.
