Chelsea Football Club have confirmed the signing of a forward player from Brazilian side, Santos
The Blues made the official announcement on its website on Thursday, August 24, 2023. The teenage sensation, Deivid Washington, signed a seven-year contract which will keep him at the club until 2030 with the option of a further year.
He expressed his excitement about joining Chelsea on the club website.
"I am very happy to be joining a huge team like Chelsea, I can't wait to make my debut here at such a big club, and provide lots of goals and assists."
The talented forward began his career with Gremio, before switching to Santos in 2016. He made a total of 16 senior appearances for Santos in all competitions and scored two goals before moving to Chelsea.
Washington is the second player from Santos to join the Blues this summer following the arrival of 18-year-old winger Angelo Gabriel last month.
