Former Chelsea star Pat Nevin believes Brazilian starlet Neymar will be a fine addition to Chelsea’s Samba stars David Luiz, Ramires and Alex at Stamford Bridge.

“With Neymar and [fellow Brazilian youngster] substitute Lucas - maybe we were witnessing the genesis of stars who will play at the Bridge one day,” the ex Chelsea and Everton winger said.

“There are others in the Brazil squad bubbling under who will also be on the radar and two things will help Chelsea in that respect, David Luiz and Ramires.


“It is always a great help in tempting players to your club if there are some of his countrymen already on board.”

Nevin sees Luiz and Ramires as key to making other Brazilian internationals feel at home, and believes Chelsea should tap into their knowledge of eath other when they play together for their country.

“The two current Chelsea stars can also give an appraisal of the personality of any Brazilian nationals having spent time with them at close quarters.

“It is important to get these insights with any nationality, but maybe particularly with some Brazilians, there have been a few who have not fulfilled their potential if we were to be honest.

“Just to cover myself, it was a Brazilian journalist who said precisely that to me on Sunday at the game live on BBC Radio!” Nevin joked.

Nevin’s analysis of the current situation at Chelsea is one of many signs that the Stamford Bridge club are looking at Brazilian players to boost their standing, and create a reputation in the Barclays Premier League and throughout Europe as a side to be reckoned with.
