Thiago Silva set to sign two-year deal with Chelsea

Chelsea are inching closer to a deal for Paris Saint-Germain star Thiago Silva.

The Blues are going to sign Silva on a free transfer, as his contract in Paris is up.

Silva was captain for PSG's Champions League final loss to Bayern Munich on Sunday.

And respected Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano reports that the deal is close to being done.

He will sign a two-year contract and arrive in London in the coming days.

The move may result in young defender Fikayo Tomori going out on loan to get more game time.
