Chelsea has finally agreed on a fee with Monaco of roughly €38 million for their center-back, Benoit Badiashile.
Badiashile had his medicals at Chelsea a few days ago in preparation for his formal debut as a Blues player. This was revealed by transfer guru Fabrizio Romano in a post on Thursday via his Twitter profile.
Chelsea has been hunting for a left-footed center-back since the conclusion of last season, and conversations with Badiashile began in December.
Chelsea manager Graham Potter is looking to reinforce his backline in January as the Stamford Bridge team looks to finish in the top four this season.
“Understand all documents have been finally signed for Benoît Badiashile to become the new Chelsea player. The official statement, next step,” Romano tweeted.
“Badiashile already completed medical tests in London earlier this week. The deal is 100% sealed. AS Monaco will receive around €38m.”
