Turkish media outlet Haberturk has suggested that Chelsea have agreed to sign Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu.
The Blues were reportedly interested in the attacking midfielder last summer as well, but they have now made their interest concrete.
According to Haberturk, Calhanoglu has been given permission to speak to the Premier League side after a €20 million proposal was accepted.
The 22-year-old joined Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2014 after a highly successful spell with Hamburg and he went on to make 71 Bundesliga appearances for die Werkself, scoring 13 goals in the process.
Calhanoglu has been linked with a big club move for quite a while now, but the reported offer from Chelsea appears to have come out of the blue.
The Premier League side have been in excellent form of late, and they are available at 8/15 to defeat Middlesbrough on the road next weekend.
