Chelsea h as reached an agreement to sign Robert Sanchez from Brighton, according to The Athletic journalist David Ornstein’s report.
The journalist further adds that the Blues will initially pay 20 million euros, with an additional nine million in bonuses.
“The Spanish representative is expected to undergo medical tests immediately,” Ornstein reported.
“Chelsea has targeted the 25-year-old as competition for Kepa following Mendy’s departure.”
