News Update


Chelsea sign Deivid Washington from Santos for £17.2 million.

Chelsea have completed the signing of Brazilian forward Deivid Washington from Santos for around 20 million euros (£17.2 million).

Washington, 18, has agreed to a seven-year contract extension with Stamford Bridge.

He is Mauricio Pochettino’s seventh signing of the summer transfer window for Chelsea.

“I’m very happy to be joining a huge team like Chelsea,” Washington told the club’s website.

“I’m excited to make my debut here at such a big club and contribute a lot of goals and assists.”

Washington started his career at Gremio before joining Santos in 2016.

His goalscoring in the Santos youth divisions propelled the kid into the Brazilian club’s first-team system this year.

Before joining Stamford Bridge, the versatile forward made a total of 16 professional appearances for Santos in all competitions, scoring two goals.

He is the second Santos player to join Chelsea this summer, following the acquisition of Angelo, an 18-year-old winger, last month.

Hall, a Chelsea adolescent, has been signed on loan by Newcastle.
Chelsea is expected to sign Serbian goalkeeper Petrovic Caicedo, who is’ready’ to make his debut.
Pochettino stated that Moises Caicedo is “ready” to start his first match for Chelsea following his £100 million deal from Brighton.

Chelsea host Luton Town in the Premier League on Friday night at Stamford Bridge.

Caicedo made his debut in Chelsea’s 3-1 loss to West Ham on Sunday, conceding a penalty in a poor debut.

Romeo Lavia, who joined the club from Southampton for £58 million, will not be in the squad for the visit of the newly-promoted side.

“Moises is prepared to begin. No. Lavia. “He still needs a few weeks after they assessed him to be ready to be involved with the team,” Pochettino stated.

“He is currently reconditioning and attempting to catch the team and his teammates. We will have to wait a few weeks for Romeo to join the team.”

Chelsea remain winless after two Premier League games, having drawn 1-1 with Liverpool in their season opener before losing to West Ham.

The Blues produced a lot of chances against David Moyes’ side but were unable to convert them despite dominating the first half.

Chelsea’s goal-scoring woes have been brought up again after they only tallied 38 goals in the Premier League previous season.

Pochettino’s predicament is exacerbated by the absence of £52 million signing Christopher Nkunku due to a knee injury that will keep him out until the end of the season.

Carney Chukwuemeka, who scored against West Ham, has also been ruled out for about six weeks with a knee injury.

Chelsea has been linked with a number of attackers, and Pochettino has stated that the club may still add another attacking player as it continues to spend extensively in its roster.

“We’re evaluating the squad and everything.” It’s simple to say we need an offensive player, but we have offensive players that need to recuperate,” the Argentine added.

“We must wait for Armando [Broja].” Sometimes you’re almost there, and the final step is always difficult. He is training well, and we have high hopes for him.

“If we bring in a player who isn’t fit or needs to adapt to the Premier League, you might have to wait the same amount of time as you would for Broja, Nkunku, or Carney.”

“Then you’re going to cause havoc in the squad.” We are working extremely hard to assess the situation and make the best choice possible.

“It’s unfortunate because we might need some assistance right now.” We’re looking for the ideal person.

“We don’t want to stifle the development of some young guys who might be on the team.”
