Stamford Bridge side to sign Chilean wing wizard.
Chelsea are set to complete a £3.4m deal to sign one of the hottest prospects in South American football according to the Daily Mirror.
fanatix tickets – Manchester City vs Chelsea tickets are on sale from £48 for the match on February 24th at the Etihad Stadium.
The 17 year old winger, 17, who plays for Chilean top tier side O’Higgins, gained a great deal of attention due to his performance at the South American Youth Championship and has been tracked by Chelsea for two years with a bid to sign the teenager now in the offing.
The starlet spent time training with the West London club in December an experience he described as “something [he] will never forget… the best experience that [he has] ever had,”.
Clearly the Blues liked what they saw and are set to complete a £3.4m deal to capture the Chilean Under 20 international.
Cuevas will remain at his club in the meantime and is apparently set to join Chelsea in the summer.
One does wonder if Chelsea need to bring in further wide attacking talent given the likes of Juan Mata, Eden Hazard, Marko Marin, Kevin De Bruyne and Victor Moses are all available in this role and fairly youthful options to boot.
