Signed by Chelsea at the beginning of the season, young striker Deivid Washington may have more space in the final stretch of 2023/24. The guarantor is coach Mauricio Pochettino himself, who mentioned the Brazilian ex-Santos when commenting on the options in the sector with the absence of Broja, on loan at Fulham.

– I think it is important to recover Christopher (Nkunku). And, of course, Nico Jackson (from the African Cup) arrives. And then, also something we forget, but Deivid Washington is there. He is with us. Therefore, he is one of the options we have for attack. I think that’s enough – analyzed the Argentine coach.

Deivid was signed for 15 million euros and has just two appearances for Chelsea’s first team. He played for just over 10 minutes in the 2-0 defeat against Brentford, in the Premier League, and for 15 minutes in the 4-0 defeat against Preston North End, in the FA Cup.

The young Brazilian striker has been linked by Pochettino for Chelsea games, but has also played for the under-21 team. He scored three goals in six appearances for the Blues youth team. In total, Deivid was on the bench for the first team in 15 matches and was not used.

Striker Ângelo and midfielder Andrey, two other young Brazilians signed by Chelsea this season, are on loan from the club to Strasbourg. Pochettino’s team is 10th in the Premier League, with 31 points, and faces Wolverhampton next Sunday.
