Chelsea has completed the signing of Brazilian winger Angelo Gabriel from Santos.
Born in Brasilia, the 18-year-old arrives at Stamford Bridge with a wealth of senior football under his belt; he made 129 first-team appearances for Santos across all competitions.
A left-footed winger who was regularly utilised off the right side of Santos’ frontline, Angelo became the youngest player in the history of the Brazil national championship when he made his debut against Fluminense in the Maracanã, aged just 15 years and 308 days.
In April 2021, the Brazil Under-20 international scored his first senior goal, a close-range finish away to Lorenzo in the Copa Libertadores. In doing so he became the youngest goalscorer in that historic competition. He scored four more times for Santos and claimed ten assists.
