Reports suggest that the FA and the Premier League have approved the teenager’s transfer to the Blues but, as Brexit rules stipulate that English clubs can’t sign players from abroad until they are 18, he will only officially make the switch in May 2025.
Up until then, Blues supporters will be keeping a close eye on his progress. He has been in outstanding form for Ecuador at the Under 17 Championships, having scored one goal and provided six assists in only seven appearances so far.
