Chelsea have also agreed a deal with Augsburg ace Abdul Baba Rahman [Daily Mail], which could end the spending on their back line.
The 21-year-old would be a great replacement for Filipe Luis, being both talented enough to push Cesar Azpilicueta for a place in the first team and young enough to improve as his understudy. A £21.7 million deal has been agreed for the youngster, with £14 million paid up front and the rest in various playing bonuses.
Both of these moves could be a major boost to the Blues, who are yet to improve their first team from last season. Although they won the Premier League title last time round, the improvement of teams such as Arsenal, Manchester City, and Manchester United mean that it will be a lot closer this time round.
