Chelsea have made a move to sign Brazilian starlet Richarlison from Fluminense, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the west London side are trying to tempt the 20-year-old starlet to England as Antonio Conte looks to further bolster his squad ahead of next season.

The same story claims that the forward was widely expected to sign for Ajax in a £12m deal this summer but Chelsea are said to have now stepped in, with the Premier League champions trying to tempt him to move to Stamford Bridge.

The article says that the forward, who can play as a striker and a winger, has also been linked with both AC Milan and Manchester United in the past.

Chelsea completed their fourth signing of the summer on Friday when they tied up a deal to bring in Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid.

The Blues have also recruited Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger and Tiemoue Bakayoko this summer as Conte prepares his team for a return to the Champions League next season.
