Chelsea are on the verge of completing a deal for highly rated Mexican forward Ulises Davila according to talkSPORT.

The 20-year-old, who can operate either as an attacking midfielder or striker has commanded plenty of interest in recent months after a series of impressive displays for C.D. Guadalajara.

Chelsea scouts first identified Davila in last year's CONCACAF Under-20 World Cup, and are thought to have been keeping tabs on him ever since, with a view to an eventual move to Stamford Bridge.

Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas is keen to continue his recruitment drive with an emphasis placed on up-and-coming young talent, and so is keen to strike a deal for the player as soon as possible.


Davila has also attracted interest from a host of other clubs across Europe, most notably Eredivisie giants Ajax Amsterdam - but reports emanating from the Dutch media suggest that Chelsea are in the driving seat to land his signature, concluding a deal thought to be in the region of £1.75million.

However the youngster, who could follow the likes of Oriol Romeu and Romelu Lukaku to west London would not qualify for a work permit, meaning Chelsea would send him immediately out on loan to the Blues' parent club Vitesse Arnhem.
