Everton defender closing in on £4m move to Premier League rivals.
Everton youngster Ishe Samuels-Smith is set to depart the club.
The Athletic reports that the Toffees have agreed to sell the 17-year-old to Chelsea for almost £4 million. It is said that Samuels-Smith will pen a three-year deal at Stamford Bridge.
The left-back has come through the youth system at Everton and represented England at age-group level. Samuels-Smith was named on the bench in the Premier League for the first time in the Blues’ loss to Fulham at Goodison Park in April – as well as being included in the squad for a Carabao Cup defeat by Bournemouth last November.
Throughout the 2022-23 campaign, Samuels-Smith made a total of 29 appearances for both the under-21s and under-18s.
