Chelsea have confirmed their third signing of the summer transfer window, Xavier Mbuyamba.

According to Chelsea News, the premier league club have been in pursuit of the former Barcelona centre back Xavier Mbuyamba for the last few weeks and have officially signed him on a three-year deal on Thursday.

The 18-year-old Dutch youngster has been on free transfer after his contract ended in Barcelona.

Mbuyamba who is often described as the “next Van Dijk” because of his similarities with the Liverpool defender, will likely play in Chelsea’s development squad this season and might even make an appearance in the odd Cup game in Frank Lampard’s squad.

Chelsea had earlier confirmed the signings of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.
