Don Balon are reporting that the talented defender has caught the attention of Conte and he could become a Chelsea player in the next few hours.
It was said that talks have progressed rapidly, and a deal could be really made today
Despite that Chelsea have brought in Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata, as much as nine Chelsea players have departed Stamford Bridge already this summer, with the latest being Nemanja Matic to Manchester United.
Their Italian manager Antonio Conte has complained already about how lean his team is, and he is keen on adding more players before the commencement of the upcoming busy campaign.
One particular area the Italian tactician is determined to bolster his the wing-back positions. He is trying to sign at least one wing-back this summer to be an upgrade on Nigerian star player Victor Moses. And Joao Cancelo has been identified as a good option in his squad.
And Sky Sports reported that the west London club want to do all it takes to bring in Cancelo and are ready to pay Valencia up to £25 million for his signature.
