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.
