Chelsea youngster Andrey Santos has revealed he looks up to Manchester United’s Casemiro, while taking inspiration from the likes of Rodrigo and Bruno Guimaraes.

The Brazilian has been speaking to AS in Spain about his career so far and who he is looking to emulate moving forwards.

The 19-year-old is back at Chelsea this month following an unsuccessful loan spell at Nottingham Forest, who he had joined in the summer in search of regular playing time.

That never happened, though, and Chelsea elected to bring him back before deciding what the next step is before the end of the month.

The youngster is one of many highly-rated young talents currently calling Stamford Bridge home, having been signed from Vasco de Gama in a €12.5m deal in January last year.

He returned to the Brazilian side after that before moving to Chelsea in the summer permanently but is yet to get his feet under the table, with him very much a player to be developed for the future.

He’s aware of that fact and has a plan on that front, with his eyes on emulating, or at least learning from, three current Premier League stars in particular.

“My idol has always been Casemiro,” he admitted to the newspaper.

“Now I pay a lot of attention to Rodrigo because he is phenomenal. My idols are Rodri, Casemiro and Bruno Guimaraes.”
