We have been the big and controversial spenders in the Premier League over the last two years, with the Blues having spent over £1 billion on players, mostly youngsters, since Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital’s takeover of the club.

However – the results have not been what the club have been looking for and there has been some rumours that Mauricio Pochettino is demanding more players get signed that are already established in the game.

But the board being that board – and According to journalist Jorge Nicola, we are keen on landing the Brazilian youngster, dubbed Messinho (Little Messi) and have reportedly placed an offer worth a total of €60m (£51m/$63m) for the 16-year-old.

The report claims that Palmeiras may not accept the offer as they believe the player’s value could go up.

What has Pochettino said about the upcoming transfer window – Speaking to the media, Pochettino said [via The Standard]: “We can keep going in the same way with the policy [to sign young players].

“But in the squad, we have Thiago Silva, Raheem Sterling and Marcus Bettinelli. Maybe Marcus isn’t playing but he does a fantastic job helping the young guys.

“We have experienced players in the squad. It is not going against the project to have some players who are helping the young guys to perform, to be professional, and to understand what it means to be in the Premier League and to be at CHELSEA.

“We need to talk and decide the strategy for next season.”
