The just out-gone week will be one Chelsea fans will want to quickly forget after being beaten to their former player, Romelu Lukaku by their former coach at a rival club Manchester United.
Apart from the free signing of Willy Caballero from Man City, the defending champions have failed to recruit any significant summer signings.
But the next couple of days could bring smiles to the faces of Chelsea fans. Mirror on Sunday have some good news for Chelsea, reporting they are set to unveil a new signing “in the next 24 hours ” which is to be today.
AS Roma defender Antonio Rudiger is set to be a Chelsea player by the end of Sunday. Rudiger who only joined Roma permanently last summer for a fee of £7.6m. His valuation has increased more than four times since then, showing the inflated state of the transfer market. Rudiger is a big Arsenal fan but that would not stop him from joining Chelsea.
The Roma defender will undergo his medical today following a £34 million move. Chelsea chased Rudiger last summer, after Antonio Conte’s arrival, but a serious knee injury meant the German defender missed Euro 2016 and a transfer could not materialize but this time around, all is set for him to be announced as a Chelsea player.
