Europa League holders Chelsea would be making the right decision if they sign Real Madrid forward Vinicius Jr. in the January transfer window according to mediaroom.
It was revealed that the Blues are interested in a deal to sign the Brazilian international who joined Real Madrid from Brazilian Serie A club Flamengo shortly after his 18th birthday this summer.
Chelsea are not the only ones interested in signing Vinicius Jr. with other Premier League sides like Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, and Manchester United also keen on the 19-year-old attacker.

Vinicius Jr. was signed by Real Madrid for a fee of around £38.7m last summer and he went on to produce a very good first season at the Estadio Santiago Bernebeu.
He scored four goals and also provided 12 assists in 31 appearances for Real Madrid in all competitions but the Brazilian international has endured contrasting fortunes in his second season with the former European champions.
Vinicius Jr. has been restricted to just five starts for Real Madrid in the league this season.
Chelsea have many options in the attacking department but they have not been consistent this season as the Blues chase a Champions League spot via a top four place on the league table.
