As Monaco striker Radamel Falcao has agreed personal terms with Chelsea.
The Mirror says that leaves Chelsea just needing to agree a financial package with Monaco for the 29-year-old Colombian striker.
Chelsea want to take Falcao on a season-long loan with no fixed permanent deal at the end of the agreement.
But Monaco are holding out for a better agreement after Falcao’s loan to Manchester United last season ended with them not signing him.
Falcao’s current wages are £265,000-a-week but he has agreed to take a huge cut because he wants to stay in the Premier League and fancies a move to London.
