This is a huge question that really needs to be answered by Chelsea owners, especially as reports are continuing to make the rounds that they are interested in a potential deal that would see them snap up the services of Palmeiras youngster Endrick from the Brazilian Serie A. Endrick is believed to be the next big talent in football and is just another rare talent from the Brazilian talent-producing Serie A league. The trend of superstars surfacing from the South American nation and then making it to the biggest clubs in Europe looks set to be continued with clubs eyeing a potential swoop for the teenage talent.

At just a young age of 16 years, Endrick is already attracting top clubs in Europe such as Real Madrid, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, and even Chelsea. However, the big question is, do the Blues really need to make a move to sign the youngster? How would he be utilized at Stamford Bridge even if they succeed in luring him to England? Real Madrid are well known for poaching young talents and turning them into beasts, with Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo,  and Federico Valverde some of the obvious examples.

Borussia Dortmund are also said to be in the race to sign Endrick but it is believed that they do not have any interest as concrete as that of what Madrid have for the player. Chelsea already have a host of attacking players at their disposal, including Raheem Sterling, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Recall that they also have Callum Hudson-Odoi who will return from his loan spell at Bayer Leverkusen, while reports also claim that they have struck a deal with RB Leipzig for the transfer of Christopher Nkunku.

They may not need Endrick and the youngster could do well with at least another season at Palmeiras before seeking a big move away from the club.


Former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has heaped a lot of praise on his ex-teammate Theo Walcott, insisting that the former England international winger was one of the coolest and calmest persons he ever played with. The pair played for Arsenal together for several years under their former manager Arsene Wenger as they looked bright during their days at the north London club. Wilshere and Walcott, at the time, were two of the brightest talents in English football and the midfielder, who is currently looking to earn a move to a club in the summer, has revealed that he and Walcott shared a great time together at the Emirates Stadium.

Speaking on talkSPORT’s drivetime show, the 30-year-old was discussing the club’s famous victory over Barcelona in 2011 and singled out the former Southampton winger for his performance from that match.

Whilst Andrey Arshavin and Robin van Persie were the heroes on the night, scoring the goals to seal a 2-1 win for the Gunners, Wilshere and Walcott were both instrumental in the victory. The latter especially, as his former teammate revealed how crucial his pace was in getting Arsenal up the pitch, when they would win the ball back.

Former West Ham midfielder Wilshere continued by saying that it was inoritant for him and former teammate Walcott to spend more time on the ball, just like the other players because it gave them both the license and confidence to control the game and dictate play at the middle of the park.

He also added that even when they were without the ball, the aim was to get it back quickly because they know how Barcelona could easily manipulate opponents when they had the ball to themselves. Although both players were not able to fulfill their entire potential, they had a great time to gather at Arsenal.
