Chelsea are poised to finalise a deal for Brazil wonderkid Nathan, despite a late bid from FC Porto.
The youngster flew into London earlier in April to undergo a medical at Stamford Bridge, Sky Sports reported, and was at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, as the Blues took one step closer to the Premier League trophy following a goalless draw with Arsenal.

Chelsea are yet to confirm an agreement with Atletico Paranaense for the Brazil Under-20 international, although a deal, according to the Daily Mail, is close – in spite of an unwelcome bid from Porto.
Nathan will add to a strong contingency of Brazilian’s at Stamford Bridge – joining Willian, Oscar, Ramires and Filipe Luis.
If the 19-year-old’s tweets are anything to go by, he is certainly expected to seal a move to West London, and is excited at the prospect of teaming up with the Blues ‘superstars’. He has also been in attendance in the recent fixtures versus Manchester United and Arsenal.
Hazard, Oscar, William and all very humble team, received me very well. It will be an honor to play alongside these superstars
