Chelsea are set to announce a mystery signing on July 1st, according to the London Evening Standard.
The Blues have agreed terms with the player, but the club have decided to delay confirmation until the start of next month, say the Standard. The club won’t confirm who they have bought, but it is believed to be former Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero, says the report.
Chelsea are rumoured to be close to bringing in both Romelu Lukaku and Monaco’s Tiemoue Bakayoko, but negotiations have dragged somewhat in recent weeks. Per L’Equipe via Sport Witness, Bakayoko has opted for Chelsea over both Manchester clubs, and per the Daily Star, a deal for Lukaku is close to being finalised.
The champions are in need of a backup goalkeeper for Thibaut Courtois, after Asmir Begovic joined Bournemouth earlier in the month, as the BBC reported.
Despite rumours that Antonio Conte is unhappy with the Chelsea hierarchy for a lack of transfer activity, the club expect to announce the signing of Caballero and ay even bring it forward.
According to Sky Sports, Chelsea are clear that Conte is happy with the club and that he does not wish to leave.
