Chelsea fought off competition from the likes of Newcastle United and Manchester City for the signature of Andrey Santos in the summer are now working hard to sort out a work permit for the 18-year old that will allow him to play in England.

Santos has hit the headlines in the past fortnight for his stellar performances for Brazil Under-20 side in their CONMEBOL Championship, where the midfielder has scored four goals in four matches for his nation, a figure only topped by his Brazil teammate Vitor Roque (5), who has also been linked with a move to Chelsea.

The rules state that foreign players coming over to England need a certain amount of governing body endorsement points to be able to play in the country and Chelsea are now beginning a second application for a work permit for Santos, who missed out the first time around by a single point.

His performances for Brazil are said to have caught the eyes of many figures at Chelsea and with Jorginho now having left the club for Arsenal , the club feel that Santos, despite his tender age, has what it takes to make his mark on the first team.
