Two Brazilians on their way to London?

Kerlon's return to prominence seems to have once again made the teenager a hot property across world football. The Daily Mirror reports that West Ham are hoping to seal a £5million deal for the Brazilian, but will face competition from Torino, Real Betis and Espanyol for his signature.

Considering it's the Daily Mirror, this should probably be taken with a pinch of salt, especially as it is unlikely he would be able to obtain a work permit to play in England at this point of time. I would think a move to a Spanish or Portuguese club is a lot more likely for the talented youngster.

The second Brazilian possibly on his way to London is Ronaldinho, with rumors of a move to Chelsea refusing to go away, especially with his exclusion from the Barcelona side against Sevilla last weekend. The Sun reports that Ronaldinho will be able to buy his way out of his contract at the end of the season, allowing him to move for free to another club.

It would have to be questioned whether doing so is really worth £14million of Ronaldinho's own money, but if he does buy out his contract there will plenty of clubs throwing big money wages at him in an attempt to seal his signature, so it could work out. Chelsea and AC Milan are apparently heading the queue if this was to happen.
