Antonio Conte looks set to add another defender to his talented squad of players with the imminent arrival of a new right-back.
The blues are closing in on the signing of Real Madrid defender Danilo who is set to challenge Victor Moses for the right wing-back position at Chelsea. You can visit bettingsitenow.co.uk for the UK’s leading betting sites and odds available on the Real Madrid defender.
The 26-year-old Brazilian, who can play at right-back and left-back, made 17 appearances for Los Blancos last season, scoring once and providing two assists.
Although the Blues expect to sign Danilo from Real Madrid in the next few days, the Evening Standard reports that the London club have identified Southampton’s Ryan Bertrand and Monaco’s Benjamin Mendy as back-up choices, should they fail in their pursuit of the Brazilian defender.
The Evening Standard also reports that Kurt Zouma’s proposed move to Premier League outfit Stoke is close.
The French defender is expected to spend the season on-loan at the bet365 Stadium where he should get more game time.
