Chelsea are reportedly pushing to sign Athletico Paranaense youngster Vitor Roque in the next transfer window.

The Brazilian is regarded as one of the best young talents in world football and he has been tipped to move to Europe.

Arsenal and Barcelona have made contact with his entourage but it is claimed that Chelsea are favourites to land him.

As per Mundo Deportivo, the Blues are moving quickly in the player's pursuit and are trying to convince his camp.

The London giants will be without Champions League football next term but they are still optimistic over a deal.

The Blues have the funds to spend under their new ownership and they could outbid their rivals to the teenager.

The 18-year-old has the preference to join Barcelona, though the Spanish club can't afford him at the current point of time.

The Catalan giants are banned from making signings due to Financial Fair Play issues and need to offload players first.
