Despite an astounding 16 signings since the summer, several of Chelsea’s newcomers are yet to have a major impact on the team.
Chelsea Online News:
Andrey Santos, one of their most recent additions, is demonstrating his ability to find the back of the net, though.
Early in the January transfer window, the 18-year-old player joined the Blues from Brazilian team Vasco da Gama.
Fans will be thrilled to see him in blue given his recent run of form even though he hasn’t yet played for the club.
Santos has been representing Brazil internationally at the South American Youth Football Championship in Colombia.
The midfielder has five goals in as many games in the tournament after scoring the third goal in a 3-0 victory over Venezuela on Friday night.
His first goal came in their opening game against Peru. He then scored in a big win over Argentina and draws with the home team.
Brazil now leads the table of the tournament, and if they maintain that position after their next three matches, they will be declared the tournament’s champions.
Santos is one goal behind teammate Vitor Roque, who leads the league in goals scored thus far this season with six.
With the Blues struggling for results this season, Chelsea will be hoping he can maintain this form when he eventually plays for them.
After a scoreless draw with Fulham, Graham Potter’s team is now ninth in the Premier League.
Chelsea may experience difficult circumstances in the near future, but with Santos on their squad, the future is undeniably promising.
