There are reports that Chelsea have shown interest in Palmeiras midfielder, Patrick de Paula, for a possible transfer.

According to Sport Witness, via astamfordbridgetoofar.com, the Blues have Premier League rivals Manchester City and Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund to contend with.

The Blues are, however, not the only club after the 21-year-old sensation. The report adds that Premier League rivals Manchester City and Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund are also interested in De Paula.

The midfielder has impressed in the last two seasons at the Sao Paulo-based club. He has made 59 career appearances for them and scored 6 times since his senior team debut.

De Paula was also in the team that won the 2020 Copa Libertadores and is one of the most exciting young midfielders in Brazil. He can play a variety of positions in the midfield as well.

Chelsea could do with some reinforcements in their midfield. N’Golo Kante and Matteo Kovacic are holding the fort as of now in a two-man midfield but Tuchel could use some fresh faces in the middle of the park.

A £25million bid is believed to be enough to land him in the summer, and Chelsea should take the risk with the youngster. After all, they don’t have a bad experience with Brazilian exports in their team.
