Portuguese side Belenenses are close on signing the Chelsea forward Nathan on a loan deal, according to reports from the Portuguese press this Tuesday afternoon.

O Jogo claims that the player is already in Portugal, and should be presented by the Lisbon side on Wednesday, since the club’s youth levels are playing on Tuesday.

There are no details on the contract length or if Belenenses are paying Chelsea a fee for the deal, so maybe that information could come out tomorrow once the transfer is official.

Nathan was signed by Chelsea from Atletico Paranaense on a €4m deal in 2015, but hasn’t been given the opportunity to make a go of his Stamford bridge career yet.

The 21-year-old had a loan spell at Dutch side Vitesse between 2015 and 2017, and spent the first part of the current season playing in France for Amiens.

The youngster’s contract with Chelsea runs until 2020.
