Transfer deadline: Chelsea agree deal with Juventus star as Everton push to sign Diaz


Chelsea have agreed a deal to sign Juventus ace Denis Zakaria on a season-long loan.

The Athletic claim Zakaria is undergoing a medical in Turin and personal terms are not expected to be an issue.

It is said Chelsea will hold an option to sign the 25-year-old defensive midfielder permanently.

Zakaria has made 15 appearances for Juve since joining from Borussia Monchengladbach for £4million

Also, Everton are reportedly making a late attempt to sign Blackburn striker Ben Brereton Diaz.

Sky Sports claim Everton have upped their interest after failing to agree a deal with Watford for striker Joao Pedro.

It is said the Toffees are in discussions with Blackburn officials and hope to agree a deal.

Blackburn don’t want to sell Brereton Diaz but could be tempted by an offer of £20million.
