Chelsea have reportedly agreed a €40m deal with Juventus for Daniele Rugani, at the request of incoming Coach Maurizio Sarri.
The defender worked with the former Napoli boss at Empoli, and was considered to be one of the most promising defenders in Italy.
However, he has failed to earn a regular starting spot in Turin, and Premium Sport is now reporting that a deal is done with the Blues.
The Premier League side will pay €40m to sign Rugani, having been pushed to do so by Sarri.
That would also seem to indicate that Chelsea are finally close to agreeing a compensation package with Napoli to release the Coach from his contract.
