Negotiations between the clubs are at an advanced stage and once an agreement is reached with Santos, Chelsea will negotiate personal terms with Angelo.

The teenager was promoted to Santos’ first team in January 2021 after impressing in the club’s youth ranks.

The Brasilia-born player has scored two goals in 12 league appearances for Santos this season. If the deal is completed, Angelo will join compatriots Thiago Silva and Andrey Santos at Stamford Bridge.

Barcelona and Brazilian giants Flamengo have also monitored Angelo in recent months.
