CHELSEA have confirmed the summer signing of Brazilian attacker Deivid Washington.

The club have been very busy in the transfer market this summer and have signed a number of exciting talents that are heavily tipped to become some of the very best in the game.

And that led to speculation in the media that Washington is a player that the club have been trying to sign for the last couple of months – and after alot of transfer rumours – they have not confirmed the deal.

WHAT HAS BEEN SAID – 

The Blues posted on the club website: ‘The teenage forward has signed a seven-year contract, with the option of a further year, following a breakout season in South America and follows Angelo Gabriel in joining from Santos.

‘Washington can play anywhere across the line in the final third but predominately operates as a striker. He sealed his transfer earlier today and the Brazilian becomes our latest summer addition.

‘The talented forward began his career with Gremio, before switching to Santos in 2016. He caught the eye while featuring in the youth ranks at Santos, with his goalscoring exploits earning him a call-up to the first-team picture.

‘Washington made his senior debut for Santos in April, coming on as a late substitute in the Copa do Brasil, before netting his first goal a month later in a 3-0 Serie A win over Bahia.

‘Welcome to CHELSEA, Deivid!’
