Chelsea look set to sign their fourth ‘Brazilian wonderkid’ this season as they lead the race to sign Gabriel Moscardo.

The Corinthians midfielder – who is valued at £26million by the club – has attracted attention from a host of top clubs including Liverpool and Arsenal. 

But it appears Chelsea are looking most likely to sign the 18-year-old South American, according to the Standard.

The Blues had an £18m bid for him rejected in the summer, but they will reportedly try to sign him again in January.

Corinthians are said to be waiting until after their presidential elections on November 25 to sell the player.

If the Blues do sign Moscardo, it will be yet another addition of a talented youngster at the club.

In January the highly-rated Andrey Santos was signed by Chelsea from Vasco da Gama for £16m.

However, after being loaned out to Nottingham Forest he has struggled for playing time, leading the Blues to consider recalling him in January. 

In July Chelsea then signed 15-year-old teenage Brazilian winger Angelo Gabriel from Santos.

Just a month later they then signed another Brazilian teenager from Santos in Deivid Washington for £17.2m who plays as a forward.

As previously signalled by manager Mauricio Pochettino, this is yet another example of how Chelsea are building for the future.
