Chelsea in advanced talks to sign Caleb Wiley from Atlanta

Chelsea are in advanced talks to sign left-back Caleb Wiley from Atlanta United.

The deal for the 19-year-old is not yet done, though.

Wiley has been twice capped by the senior United States side since making his debut last year. He is not in Gregg Berhalter’s squad for the ongoing Copa America but was named in the U.S. pre-Olympic roster at the end of May.


Wiley has played 81 times for Atlanta since making his senior debut in 2022. This season, he has started all but one of their 19 MLS fixtures.

Chelsea have been very active in targeting young players at the start of the summer transfer window. The Premier League side have already brought in Omari Kellyman from Aston Villa and look set to add Boca Juniors defender Aaron Anselmino and Barcelona striker Marc Guiu.

They have also made an offer to sign Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall from Leicester City and have held talks over the potential signing of Canada international Jonathan David. In terms of outgoings, full-back Ian Maatsen has joined Aston Villa and winger Omari Hutchinson is close to rejoining Ipswich Town in a permanent deal.
