Chelsea target Wallace Dos Santos believes having other Brazilians at the London club will help him settle into the English Premier League.
Wallace has yet to officially sign with Chelsea but the deal is expected to be finalised soon and the 18-year-old full-back is looking forward to moving to England.
With compatriots Oscar, Ramires and David Luiz already at the west London club, Wallace is confident he will not have any problem settling into life in London.
“It’s always helpful having Brazilian colleagues playing by your side,” Wallace said.
“Because normally they are settled down, they can give you some advice and this is important. Even in the language.
“Now that I’m moving to London I’ll have to learn some English but they are used to this and I’m sure they will help me a lot.”
Wallace has played 18 matches for Fluminense in their Brazil Serie A title-winning season but is expected to leave the Rio de Janeiro-based club for Chelsea, with a deal likely to be signed over the weekend.
Despite previously saying he prefers Spain’s top flight, Wallace has claimed he has started watching as many Chelsea games as he can to prepare for his transfer.
“I used to follow La Liga and its big clubs but now because I’m moving to Chelsea I’m following the club more, especially after the Champions League triumph,” Wallace said.
“I’m watching every single match of them, sometimes I can’t watch because I’m playing or concentrated with my team, but I don’t miss a chance to see them playing on TV.”
