Chelsea to confirm Badiashile deal

Chelsea are reportedly on the verge of announcing the transfer of defender Benoit Badiashile from Monaco.

The Blues recently agreed a package of €40m for the France international and the player has already travelled to London for a medical.

The necessary formalities are nearly complete and the club are widely expected to confirm his arrival in the next 24 hours.

Chelsea are scheduled to host Manchester City in the Premier League on Thursday night and Badiashile could make the squad.

The centre-back needs to be registered by 12pm UK time tomorrow in order to be in contention for the game against the Cityzens.

The Blues have been in poor league form with just one win from the last seven games. They face another huge test on Thursday.

Pep Guardiola's side will be overwhelming favourites despite being on the road, but Chelsea will be hoping to surprise them.

Chelsea have a good record against the league champions and have beaten them in four of the last eight meetings in all competitions.
