A report on The Mirror claims Chelsea are close to finalizing a £30million deal with Middlesbrough for speedy winger Adama Traore.
The 22-year-old former Barcelona winger has impressed for Middlesbrough this season in the Championship.
A source told The Mirror: “Adama knows there is major interest – and Chelsea have always been at the head of the queue.”
Everton and Newcastle have also been linked with Traore but Chelsea reportedly lead the race to sign the 22-year-old.
With Chelsea struggling to mount a title challenge this season and even struggling to finish in the top four, Chelsea fans would be expecting Chelsea to push for quality signings that can instantly improve the team and not potentials like Traore.
