Chelsea loanee Andrey Santos set to arrive at Strasbourg

Andrey Santos (19) is set to arrive in Strasbourg on Wednesday ahead of medical tests, which will precede the completion of his loan move from Chelsea, as per a report from L’Équipe.

RC Strasbourg Alsace secured a loan deal for Santos late in the transfer window, however, the midfielder, who spent the first half of the season on loan at Nottingham Forest, was away on international duty. Santos was competing in a qualification tournament for this summer’s Olympics in Paris, however, following Brazil’s elimination at the hands of Argentina on Monday, he has travelled back to France. 

Santos will undergo the formalities before signing the necessary paperwork on Wednesday. He is then expected to take part in his first training session with Les Alsaciens on Thursday morning. It is expected that he will be included in the Strasbourg squad to face FC Lorient on Sunday, where Patrick Vieira’s side will be looking to bounce back after suffering successive defeats.
