The Atletico Paranaense playmaker took to Twitter to confirm that he was in the England capital to undergo tests at the Blues’ Cobham training base this week, and is thrilled to be nearing a move to the Premier League title leaders.

According to the Daily Star, the Blues are keen to get the reported £4.7m deal wrapped up quickly, and could confirm the signing of the 19-year-old by the end of the week.
