Chelsea FC is in advanced talks to sign both Daniele Rugani and Aleksandr Golovin as they look to bolster their squad ahead of next season, according to reports in the British media.
The Evening Standard is reporting that the Blues are closing in on deals for both the Juventus defender and CSKA midfielder Golovin as they look to assemble a team capable of at least breaking back into the top four next season.
The same report says that Chelsea FC have also entered into negotiations with AS Roma over a deal to sign Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker as the future of Thibaut Courtois continues to be a source of speculation.
The west London side is still thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer, with Chelsea FC yet to officially confirm any new arrivals, or who will be their manager next season.
The same story also claims that Chelsea FC will listen to offers for Brazilian attacker Willian if a bid in excess of £70m arrives.
It remains to be seen who will be in charge of the Blues next season as the speculation about Antonio Conte’s future at the club continues.

Gianfranco Zola has admitted that he wants to see the managerial situation at Chelsea FC resolved as quickly as possible.
Antonio Conte’s situation at Chelsea FC has been a constant source of speculation all summer after the Blues ended up in fifth place in the Premier League table last season and missed out on Champions League qualification.
Maurizio Sarri has long been linked with the managerial position at Stamford Bridge, but there is yet to be any official announcement from the west London club.
Zola has been linked with taking up the assistant manager’s job at Stamford Bridge this summer.
Now, the Chelsea FC legend has spoken out about the situation at his former club.
Zola is quoted as saying by the Evening Standard: “There’s so much talk. There are many teams who would like a coach like Sarri. I think the parties are working on it, but I don’t know anything more.
“We are talking about two coaches that I respect a lot: Antonio and Maurizio.
“I really wish that a quick solution that would be good for both parties is found. At the moment you need to have a clear situation as quickly as possible.”
Meanwhile, Chelsea FC is yet to make any new signings this summer as they look to try and revamp their squad ahead of next season.
The Blues will be looking to at least build a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season after their disappointing campaign last term.
They did end the season on a positive note the last term by beating Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley back in May.
