Chelsea are very close to agreeing a deal for Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong, with the the Blues willing to meet the Spanish side’s steep asking price for the midfielder.

The Dutchman has been the talk of the transfer window after strong links emerged over a potential move to the English Premier League – with Manchester United and Chelsea both interested in his services.

But it seems the Blues have pipped their league rivals to de Jong’s signature – as they look to agree a deal for the player in the coming days.

According to SPORT, the London club would be in a position to exceed the €80million (£68.8million) figure which Barça are asking for the Dutchman.

Chelsea have been keen on the midfielder all summer and it’s understood there has been a lot of movement in the discussions for de Jong – with the Blues in constant contact with his agent in the hope of closing a deal soon.

The same outlet has earlier reported that the 25-year-old was refusing to consider a move away from the Camp Nou – a decision he’s now U-turned on.
