While the Blues are close to signing Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, we are also close to losing another forward in the squad.

According to Goal, Serie A outfit Roma are in advanced talks to sign Chelsea forward Pedro as a free agent.

The report claims Pedro has been in talks with Roma since April but negotiations have advanced significantly in the last 48 hours.

Pedro’s five year stay at Chelsea is set to come to an end this June when his contract at the club expires.

Injuries and Frank Lampard’s faith in younger players this season has seen Pedro restricted to just 18 appearances for the Blues this season.

With Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner set to join the Chelsea squad next season, Pedro is only likely to fall further down the pecking order.

Pedro has won the Premier League, the FA Cup and the Europa League during his five years at Stamford Bridge, scoring 43 goals and providing 28 assists in 201 appearances.
