Blues are reportedly leading the chase for the possible transfer of Hertha Berlin attacker Matheus Cunha. The Brazilian has caught the eye with his displays in the Bundesliga, with Real Madrid also among the clubs interested in the €20m-rated forward.

Matheus seems a big talent and could fit in well in this youthful side Frank Lampard is putting together at London. And at a reported fee of €20m, Cunha could end up being an absolute bargain for Chelsea in the long run, provided he can continue to improve and develop at this rate. London giants signed Hakim Ziyech from Ajax during the winter transfer window.

The Brazil Under-23 international has three goals in just five games for Hertha Berlin, and it’s little surprise top clubs seem to be taking notice of him. Frank Lampard wants to strengthen the front-line during the summer transfer window as Willian wants to leave the London club.

Real Madrid have done well to sign the best young talent from Brazil in recent times, including Rodrygo Goes and Vinicius Junior. However, the London giants are currently ahead of Los Blancos in the race for the Brazilian attacker’s signature.
