Chelsea transfer update: 6ft 5 striker seal Paper works, target to complete medicals ahead of Sunday, deal to be official done in days


This transfer window has been a different one for Chelsea since the take-over of Abrahamovic at the club. The Blues selling more they are buying, in fact yet to make any significant signing except for the veteran goalie, Willy Cabalero.

Fernando Llorente is expected to join Chelsea any moment from now with paper works just been finalized. The Spanish international is having a year left on his Swansea contract and will be joining the Blues as a second striker since the Blues are still in for another striker.

Romelu Lukaku future is taking lots of dimension in the last couple of days. News broke out last Thursday that Manchester United have agreed a £75m deal for the Belgian. Everton however are claiming that a deal have not been agreed which still gives Chelsea a glimpse of hope that the deal is still possible.

The probability of Lukaku joining United has outweighed him joining his former club as it stands now. After the possible fall out of the Lukaku deal, Chelsea are looking forward to chasing old targets in Belotti and Morata. It is understood that Antonio Conte is furious with Chelsea’s lack of activity so far in the transfer market.

Tiemoue Bakayoko was almost a done deal for Chelsea before now but nothing has been heard of the French international move to Stanford Bridge in recent days. The deal should be round up by next week as pre season are about to start.

Rumors going round now that, Antonio Rudiger revealed that he would love to play for Arsenal. This maybe might be the reason for the delay of a deal that all personal terms have been agreed on.

He has reportedly agreed personal terms to join Chelsea but that was the last thing heard of the news.
