Brazilian club Fluminense have confirmed the transfer of young star Kenedy, with Chelsea reported to be the destination.
The 19-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Europe this year, as scouts from Manchester United, Barcelona and Chelsea flocked to Fluminense games to watch him in action.
The Brazilian teenager has been a fixture for his country's under-20 side and is rated as one of Brazil's best young talents.
Chelsea have a strong existing Brazilian contingent at the club, which no doubt helped pave the way for Kenedy's arrival.
He will be joining the likes of Willian, Oscar, Ramires and Lucas Piazon at the club and playing under a manager whose native language is Portuguese.
That should help the settling in process for Kenedy, if indeed Chelsea is his next club.
Brazilian reports say Fluminense have confirmed his departure but the club has not provided any further details. The Chelsea link is provided by Brazilian newspaper Globo Esporte, who claim that Jose Mourinho has sanctioned a €10m deal to sign the player.
Kenedy would be unlikely to secure a work permit so Chelsea would probably have to send him out on loan next season - Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem is a good bet thanks to the links between the two clubs.
Chelsea have already signed one Brazilian recently as they announced the capture of Nathan from Atletico Paranaense for an undisclosed transfer fee in May 2015.
