Chelsea are getting set for next season, as the Blues are reportedly set to complete another sensational signing even before this season wraps off.

Reports have claimed that Chelsea are close to the £30 million signing of Lille’s Gabriel Magalhaes.

Lille are said to have accepted bids from Chelsea, Everton and two Italian clubs for the Brazilian centre-back but the Blues are close to completing a deal for the 22 year old.

Meanwhile, a report from Telegraph Sport states that the Toffees are still confident of beating their Premier League rivals to the 22-year-old’s signature.

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti is believed to be interested in signing the Brazilian and will rival Chelsea for his signature.

Magalhaes has started 29 times for Lille this season, including all six games in the Champions League group stages.
