Chelsea has reportedly reached an agreement with Dutch club, Monaco, to sign Benoit Badiashile for £34 million.
The Athletic reported that the two clubs have reached a “total agreement” for the transfer of the 21-year-old French footballer, and the London-based club is now scheduling his medical ahead of an official announcement.
Badiashile who is expected to sign a long-term deal at Stamford Bridge after completing his medicals, is Chelsea’s second signing of the January window. The Blues had signed Ivorian striker Datro Fofana from Molde for a reported £10 million.
Chelsea currently sits ninth in the Premier League after 15 games and they will be hoping that Badiashile, along with other January signings, can give them fresh hope in the race for Champions League football.
It is also speculated that Brazilian midfielder Andrey Santos and Argentinian midfielder Enzo Fernandez are on the English club’s radar.
