Chelsea have reached an agreement to sign midfielder Denis Zakaria from Juventus on a season-long loan with an option to buy.
Zakaria will undergo a medical in Turin, with personal terms not representing a problem between the club and player.
Zakaria previously played for Borussia Monchengladbach after joining the Swiss side in the summer of 2017. He made 125 appearances for the club before joining Juventus in January 2022.
Chelsea are still hopeful of concluding a deal for Pierre Emerick Aubameyang. The deal will see Marcos Alonso join the Spanish giants as part of the swap deal.
