Top News 3: Chelsea close in on Thiago Silva

Despite spending over £70m on new signings already this summer, the Stamford Bridge residents are showing no signs of stopping their transfer spree just yet.

Thiago Silva is inching towards a free transfer to Chelsea after the conclusion of PSG’s Champions League campaign this week, reports The Athletic.

Silva, 36, is set to leave the Parc des Princes residents after eight highly successful seasons with the club. He has reportedly indicated his desire of playing in the Premier League even if that involves the Brazilian taking a pay cut.

His potential transfer to Chelsea would be a huge coup on the part of the Blues who are in the market for a new center-back. Their current defensive pairing of Kurt Zouma and Antonio Rudiger failed to meet expectations last season and saw the Blues ship in 54 goals in 38 Premier League games.

But while Frank Lampard’s side are favorites to sign the soon-to-be free agent, it remains to be seen whether they break with their transfer policy and offer Silva a contract longer than a single year.
