Chelsea boost as Palmeiras wonderkid Endrick reveals English lessons

Palmeiras wonderkid Endrick admits he’s taking English lessons after his visit to London for Chelsea talks.

It is hoped the young Brazilian, who currently plays for Palmeiras, will follow in the footsteps of other Samba stars like Neymar and Vinicius Junior.

Endrick revealed in an interview with Gazzetta that he was gearing up for a move to a Champions League club – and added he was learning English.

Chelsea’s pursuit of the forward has received multiple boosts this week.

Thiago Silva, 38, reportedly gave Endrick and his family a tour of Chelsea’s training ground.

PSG are also believed to have had two bids knocked back by Palmeiras for the star.

Chelsea have also reportedly held several transfer meetings with Endrick’s camp as they look to steal a march on rivals.
