Chelsea have agreed on a fee with Swedish Club IFK Gothenburg for the transfer of Edwin Andersson.
Chelsea reportedly faced competition from Manchester United, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side previously taking the youngster on trial 18 months ago.
Speaking to Expressen last year, Andersson’s father said: “There have been an incredible number of clubs from virtually all countries that have been interested in him. But he has chosen to go to Chelsea when it’s time. According to the rules he must be 16 first and then it is up to the clubs to agree. “There’s still some details, but the day it’s time he has decided that it’ll be Chelsea.
“It is a chance you can take if the package is right. They have very good education and care about you as a human being, which one might not believe.”
He added: “It is the dream of every boy to have such an opportunity, that is where we are now. But it should be the right conditions, otherwise it will be nothing.
“He’s pretty much like Callum Hudson-Odoi at Chelsea. When he was younger, he was a little more like Ronaldo. He mainly stays on the left.”
When asked if he had a message for final message for fans, he replied with Chelsea’s four word anthem: “Blue is the Colour.”
