Chelsea in deep talks to seal £32 million deal as Sarri gets massive Vecino boost
Chelsea look all set to seal a deal for Inter Milan winger Matias Vecino, after the Italians are close to a deal for Arturo Vidal.
Reports emerged on Monday which had claimed Blues boss Maurizio Sarri had asked the board to sign up Vecino before the transfer deadline finishes on August 9th.
The Italian boss is keen to add a bit more pace and excitement to the squad and has been an admirer of Vecino since they worked together back in 2014/15 at Empoli.
Sarri has already signed midfielder Jorginho from former club Napoli and goalkeeper Rob Green on a free transfer, but it looks like Vecino could be the next name through the door at Stamford Bridge.
And according to the Metro website, Milan are closing in on a loan-deal for the Bayern Munich star Vidal, and would be willing to let Vecino depart sooner rather than later if they can complete a deal before the transfer deadline.
Vecino made 29-appearances for the Italian last season and is ultimately a big part of their starting squad, but Chelsea are willing to pay around £32 million to complete a transfer deal and that is more than Milan value the Uruguay International at.
Sarri is expected to do a number of late transfer deals as many fans expect a bunch of new faces to arrive at Stamford Bridge in the coming weeks.
