It's being reported that we could be about to sign 17-year-old Chilean defender Igor Lichnovsky from Universidad of Chile. For once there is an actual quote in the report. Just how much weight you give to that quote is up to you. :)

Chelsea could be about to sign 17-year-old Chilean defender Igor Lichnovsky from Universidad de Chile according to their South American scout Jorge Alvial.

Lichnovsky has been at Universidad since the tender age of 10, and he has already represented the Chilean Under 17 national side, though he yet break into the first team squad at Universidad.

Alvial has been keeping an eye on the youngster for some time now, admiring his performances at youth level, where he is regarded as one of the best players in his age group.

Alvial spoke to La Tercera, a Chilean website, and said, “Igor is a very good player. I have been following him for some time and he is in the mind for Chelsea.” Chelsea have already signed one South American youngster this year, Lucas Piazon, but he is unable to join until he is 18, so if any deal for Lichnovsky is to go ahead it would appear as though a similar pre-contract agreement would need to be drawn up.
