The deal for the Leicester City FC defender is set to be completed over the weekend.
The French defender will sign for Chelsea until June, 2028.
Personal terms have already been agreed upon by both player and Chelsea.
All that remains now is paperwork and final details before the deal is officially announced by Chelsea and Leicester City.
The Frenchman has been pivotal to this deal materializing after making his feelings known, in no uncertain terms, about wanting to link up with Thomas Tuchel’s side.
A breakthrough in the deal came on Friday after both clubs finally settled on Chelsea’s new bid.
The fee is yet unspecified, but, both parties are well on course to reaching total agreement on the transfer.
