The Chile Under 20 international is reported to have had a trial with Chelsea towards the end of last year and the Premier League club have seemingly followed up their interest.

Reports in Chile say that Chelsea have offered $2.6million (£2.2m) for the 17-year-old, with O'Higgins rumoured to want $4million (£3.4m) before agreeing to a sale.

"The talks are advanced but not finalised yet. We are still discussing some points."
