Chelsea-Saul latest

Niguez has been on Atletico’s books since he joined from Real Madrid’s youth ranks.

In that time he has notched 340 appearances for the Spanish outfit, scoring 43 goals and assisting 20.

The 26-year-old would likely add some serious quality to Chelsea’s midfield, which has had some issues over the last few years due to N’Golo Kante’s continuing injury woes.

However, with the UK transfer deadline having passed, an official announcement is yet to be forthcoming from Chelsea or Atletico.

But, Chelsea fans should not be too worried right now. As per Sky’s Kaveh Solhekol, Saul Niguez’s deal to Chelsea from Atletico Madrid is all but done, and it is now a race against time to file all the paperwork.

However, Solhekol adds that it should be fine because they will have an extra hour after the deadline to finalise everything:

5 players Man United should target to join Paul Pogba & Bruno Fernandes in midfield

Five managers Arsenal could realistically sound out to replace Mikel Arteta
