Chelsea FC are set to make Juventus defender Daniele Rugani their third summer signing in a £36m deal, according to a report in Italy.

Website Transfer Market Web, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the Blues are on the brink of completing a deal to sign the Italian centre-half.

The same article states that the west London side will cough up a transfer fee in the region of £36m to sign the promising Italy international from the Serie A champions.

According to the same story, Rugani is still unsure whether he should leave Juventus to move to Chelsea FC and the centre-half’s indecisiveness is holding the deal up.

The 23-year-old struggled to hold down a regular starting spot in the Juve first team under Massimiliano Allegri last term despite his glowing reputation.

Maurizio Sarri took over the reins of the west London side from Antonio Conte earlier this month after he left Serie A runners up Napoli.

Chelsea FC made Jorginho their first summer signing in a £57m deal from Serie A side Napoli last week.

The west London outfit managed to see off competition from Premier League champions Manchester City in Jorginho.
