Chelsea are reportedly poised to make their third signing of the summer, with 19-year-old Fluminense forward Kenedy ready to put pen to paper after undergoing a medical in London on Tuesday night.
The Independant say the Blues are close to completing a £6.3m deal for the Brazil youth international, who has represented his country at Under-17 and Under-20 level.
Manchester United were also said to be keen to sign Kenedy, but Chelsea have beaten their rivals to the punch.
Kenedy will become the third South American to arrive at Stamford Bridge this summer, following in the footsteps of Nathan and loan-signing Radamel Falcao.
It is expected that Kenedy will be loaned out by Chelsea for the 2015-16 season.
