He adds that the West London club are interested in the 17-year-old, but there have since been no major developments in this saga, despite other reports claiming otherwise.

The journalist states that since their bid was rejected for the midfielder, nothing else has happened between the two parties, nor has the Premier League side gone back for him yet. Romano further claims that it remains to be seen if any other clubs are going to make a move for the teenager.

How Can the Midfielder Fit In At Chelsea?

It remains to be seen if the Blues actually make a move for the 17-year-old, who has been impressing for Corinthians over the last year or so. He is quite a versatile player, being able to play anywhere in the midfield, be it in a deeper role, as a No.8, or even in an advanced midfield position.

Moscardo has made his debut for the Brazil U-21 national team, having played for them earlier this year. He has made 11 appearances for the Brazilian team, and his performances have been enough to attract interest from a team like Chelsea.

The Blues are probably interested in the teenager, who has been termed a “wonderkid” because they see him as a future prospect and someone who can slot into their midfield position and possibly compete with the likes of Enzo Fernandez and summer signings Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia a few years later.

For now, it remains to be seen if they can actually bring the youngster to Stamford Bridge in the near future.
