Fluminense's Wallace close to Chelsea move...if everything goes to plan

Fluminense young gun Wallace is on the verge of making the move to Chelsea according to club manager Abel Braga and director Rodrigo Caetano.

The 18-year old Brazilian full-back has previously been linked with a £4.4million move to Stamford Bridge and now it appears that there is a massive chance he could be off to the Premier League in January if everything goes to plan.

"Wallace has been negotiated for a long time. He is a player that has impressed," he told Terra.

"Do you think people abroad sign someone based on one game?

"They watch a player for two, three months - sometimes even a year. They are taking a great player and Fluminense are completely right in selling him."

Caetano added: "I can't deny there are ongoing negotiations with Chelsea, but the deal isn't done yet, we still have exchange documents.

"And there is a non-disclosure agreement clause, and in case the information leaks, the deal might not happen.

"Let's hope this problem doesn't prevent the deal from happening."
