Chelsea expect deal for either Paredes or Barella this week

Chelsea have lined up two replacements for Cesc Fabregas.

The club have blocked Fabregas from joining Monaco this month until they find a replacement.

And Sky Sports claim the Blues are closing in on deals for Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Leandro Paredes and Cagliari's Nicolo Barella, who could cost £45m.

24-year-old Paredes has caught Chelsea's eye with a number of fine performances for the Russian giants this season.

A deal for one of the two aforementioned names is expected to be completed this week.
