Chelsea is expected to complete the signing of Pedro from Barcelona in the coming days. It is reported that the Premier League champions optioned the £21.2 million buy-out clause in the Spanish forward’s contract.
Pedro was the subject of much speculation surrounding a move to Manchester United, but that has since fallen through with Chelsea likely snapping up the forward.
Pedro is expected to be in London on Wednesday to undertake a medical and discuss personal terms.
Should this move be completed, Chelsea will bolster one of the strongest attacking line-ups in the league and would be likely to bounce back from their disappointing first two games.
