Chelsea are set to complete the signing of Portugal goalkeeper Eduardo, according to Dinamo Zagreb manager Zlatko Kranjcar.
Kranjcar revealed the 33-year-old, who had previously been linked with Sporting CP, was ready to join Antonio Conte’s side after playing in the second leg of Zagreb’s Champions League play-off tie against Red Bull Salzburg next Wednesday.
Eduardo was in his country’s squad for their victorious Euro 2016 campaign but did not play a match.
Kranjcar told reporters: “Eduardo has got the big honour to go to a big club such as Chelsea.
“Yes, I think he is leaving for Stamford Bridge after the Salzburg game.”
Chelsea’s first-choice goalkeeper is Thibaut Courtois, although back-up Asmir Begovic has been linked with an exit. The club have also been linked with AC Milan shot stopper Diego Lopez.
