It remains to be conclusive as of yet whether Chelsea are about to make their second agreement signing for the summer so far after Hakim Ziyech.
Over the weekend their were a couple of reports suggesting that Chelsea are close to signing Lille centre back Gabriel Magalhaes, who is more commonly known as ‘Gabriel’.
There has yet to be any decisive updates on this as it stands, but The Express have posted a report today suggesting that the defender could ‘soon be allowed to leave Lille’, citing Journalist Duncan Castles as the source.
Chelsea are reportedly one of four clubs who have had an offer accepted by the club. But it is Chelsea who are in pole position, as per the reports.
Frank Lampard seems to want a more dominant centre back to come in for next season, suggesting he isn’t entirely convinced by all four of his current options right now.
