Chelsea closing in on massive summer deal for £25.5 million man

Reports have claimed Chelsea have scouted Benfica winger Nico Gaitan ahead of a potential £25.2million transfer move, according to the Metro.

The Blues are in the market to add fresh faces to their squad and ran the rule over the Argentine in the Portuguese giant’s most recent match against Academica.

Gaitan, 27, has been at Benfica since 2010 but has long been linked with a move away from the Estadio da Luz.

He is believed to have release clause worth £27million in his current contract. © 2017 Frontier Theme
