Chelsea will complete the signing of Willy Caballero on a free transfer this week, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Star and Daily Express are both reporting that the Blues are set to announce the arrival of the Argentine goalkeeper as their first summer signing in the coming days.

The 35-year-old is currently a free agent after being released by Manchester City at the end of last season and Chelsea have been on the lookout for a new goalkeeper after Asmir Begovic’s transfer to Bournemouth this summer.

Now, it is being claimed that Chelsea are on the verge of wrapping up a deal to bring the goalkeeper to Stamford Bridge this summer.

Despite all of the transfer speculation surrounding the Premier League champions, Chelsea are yet to confirm the arrival of any new players this summer as Antonio Conte prepares his team for a return to the Champions League next season.

The Blues have been linked with a host of players but are yet to officially confirm the signing of any new stars.
