Chelsea Football Club has secured the signing of talented attacking midfielder Alex Matos from Norwich City.

The 18-year-old, who possesses versatility and can play comfortably in midfield and across the frontline, joined Norwich City in 2016. Last season, he made 21 appearances for Norwich City’s U18s and U21s, impressing with a goal involvement per game average of five goals and six assists in his first 11 outings at that level. Matos featured prominently for Norwich City’s U18s team throughout the 2022-23 season.

Prior to his time at Norwich, Matos had been part of Luton Town’s ranks. Last year, he signed his first professional contract with Norwich City, after completing a two-year scholarship program with the club that began in July 2021.

Reports suggest that Chelsea’s academy manager, Jim Fraser, played a key role in securing Matos’s transfer. Fraser, who was appointed head of youth development and recruitment in February, has been focused on assembling a strong Chelsea U21s team by recruiting the best young talents to the club’s academy.

When discussing his playing style, Alex Matos described himself as a forward capable of playing in various positions within the attacking line. “My pace is probably my best attribute; getting into the box and creating chances, it’s a big part of my game,” Matos stated last year.
