However, the Blues have won the race to sign him and have confirmed that an agreement has been reached between both clubs for a fee in the region of £35 million. Born to Nigerian parents in England, the 20-year-old will now fly to London for medical tests and will be officially announced a Chelsea player once the contract is sealed.
Meanwhile, Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Leandro Trossard a fee in the region of £27 million. The 28-year-old will wear the number 19 Jersey at the Emirates and is available for selection for their top of the table clash against Manchester United on Sunday.

The Italian boss dropped the midfielder from their starting lineup in the FA Cup just after the World Cup break and it was reported that Trossard was unhappy with the decision and responded badly to the manager. His agent further claimed that De Zerbi “disrespected” the midfielder and that his client wanted a move away from the Amex.
