OFFICIAL: Chelsea signs Washington

Chelsea have announced the signing of Brazilian forward Deivid Washington as their tenth summer signing. The 18-year-old forward has agreed an eight-year contract at Stamford Bridge, and moves to the club from Santos.

Chelsea released an official statement on their website to confirm the signing of Deivid Washington from Santos.

“Chelsea has completed the signing of Deivid Washington from Brazilian side Santos. The teenage forward has signed a seven-year contract, with the option of a further year, following a breakout season in South America and follows Angelo Gabriel in joining from Santos.

“Washington can play anywhere across the line in the final third but predominately operates as a striker. He sealed his transfer earlier today and the Brazilian becomes our latest summer addition.

“The talented forward began his career with Gremio, before switching to Santos in 2016. He caught the eye while featuring in the youth ranks at Santos, with his goalscoring exploits earning him a call-up to the first-team picture.


“Washington made his senior debut for Santos in April, coming on as a late substitute in the Copa do Brasil, before netting his first goal a month later in a 3-0 Serie A win over Bahia.

“Welcome to Chelsea, Deivid!”
