Chelsea have reportedly had a bid accepted for Schalke ace Sead Kolasinac.
The Daily Mail yesterday claimed the Blues are closing in on a deadline day swoop for the 23-year-old.
Antonio Conte is desperate to rush through the deal for the left wing-back before tonight’s deadline.
And according to Transfermarketweb, Chelsea are closer to landing their January target.
They say Kolasinac is about to join the Blues after Schalke accepted their cash bid.
The Bosnia international wasn’t just a target for Chelsea, with Juventus also keen on the defender.
The Italian giants have been in talks with Kolasinac but Conte’s late swoop seems to have taken him from under Juve’s nose.
Kolasinac has made 14 Bundesliga appearances for Schalke this season, netting two goals and chipping in with four assists.
