Estevao Willian's latest goal celebration suggests he is keen to make a good impression with his new Chelsea teammates after sealing the move last week.

The 17-year-old has become the second summer transfer confirmed since Enzo Maresca's arrival this summer. Willian is expected to join on a long-term deal to keep him at the club until past 2030.

However, he will not join until the summer of 2025 after turning 18, and the plan is for him to settle in as part of the furniture. The winger is one of the best-rated young players in Brazil alongside Endrick and Vitor Roque, who have already completed moves to Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively.

In action for Palmeiras in their 3-1 win over Juventude on Sunday, the youngster scored his first goal since signing for Chelsea. He did well to control the ball in the area before firing into the back of the net.

After scoring Verdao's second goal, he marked the occasion by performing Cole Palmer's iconic 'cold' celebration.

As he took to social media after the game, Willian wrote: "Another amazing night. Victory, goal, congratulations to the whole team. We continue. God knows about all things."

Prior to sealing the move to Stamford Bridge, Palmeiras boss Abel Ferreira pleaded the club to keep the teenage sensation for a few more years. "Let him stay until 2027," he said.

"The player is unlike anything I’ve seen. I’m not going to say what I think [about him] but I will ask Leila [Pereira] not to sell him. His dad, his representatives will be sad but let him stay until 2027.

"He’s unique from everything I’ve seen. He defends, attacks and his presence is felt in all aspects. Estevao is an example for all our players, he gives his all, makes mistakes but goes again and gets it right. He never shies away from a challenge."
