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.
