Chelsea are reportedly set to clinch the signing of Brazilian winger Kenedy after obtaining a work permit for the player, Metro has reported.
The 19-year-old was in Chelsea's squad for their North America tour and made his debut against Barcelona in a friendly match.
According to boss Jose Mourinho, the youngster is expected to enjoy regular first-team football at Stamford Bridge this season.
"We bought Kenedy because we believe in him," Mourinho was quoted as saying by The Guardian in July.
"He's a very young kid that we believe a lot in, hopefully.
"Against Barcelona he had the chance to do it and even if it was a friendly I think it was the best debut for a kid, to play against the best team.
"It was a great night for the kid and a great experience."
