Chelsea are set to complete the signing of Fluminense forward Robert Kenedy, with the player having had a medical ahead of his £6.3m ($10m) move to Stamford Bridge, according to the Daily Mail.

The Blues beat competition from Manchester United, Barcelona, Juventus and Wolfsburg in the process and are set to make him their second Brazilian signing of the summer after the transfer of Nathan earlier in the window.

The 19-year-old is unlikely to make it into the Chelsea first team in the near future and is destined to be sent on loan where he will be afforded quality game time by which he can improve his skills and stake claim for a move back to the Premier League.

The left-footed winger is noted for his ability to cut inside and create space, something which he needs to improve on if he has to displace the likes of Juan Cuadrado and Willian who are currently deployed in that position.

Chelsea have already completed the signing of Radamel Falcao from Monaco on a season-long loan and are also looking to sign a keeper to replace Petr Cech, who has made his way to Arsenal.

Falcao will add back-up to an already impressive attack at Chelsea, with Diego Costa leading the line, and the likes of Eden Hazard and Willian marshalling the wings.

Asmir Begovic is believed to be the favourite to fill the void left by the Czech Republic international, according to the Daily Mail, but the Blues have to fend off interest from Manchester United, who are equally interested in his signature.

The Red Devils want the Bosnian to cover for Thibaut Courtois, who will be their number one choice next season after an impressive debut outing last year.

The Belgian kept 12 clean sheets and won valuable points for Chelsea which led them to win the title with three games to spare.
