Chelsea have finally sealed a transfer deal of around €38m with Monaco for their centre-back, Benoit Badiashile.
Badiashile underwent medicals at Chelsea a few days ago ahead of his official unveiling as a Blues player.
This was disclosed by transfer guru, Fabrizio Romano, in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Thursday.
Chelsea has been looking to sign a left-footed centre-back since the end of last season and opened talks over a move for Badiashile last December.
Chelsea manager, Graham Potter, is keen to strengthen his back-line this January as the Stamford Bridge club push for a top-four place this season.
“Understand all documents have been finally signed for Benoît Badiashile to become the new Chelsea player. The official statement, next step,” Romano tweeted.
“Badiashile already completed medical tests in London earlier this week. The deal is 100% sealed. AS Monaco will receive around €38m.”
