Chelsea had a verbal agreement to purchase Chicago Fire goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina for €10M, as per Fabrizio Romano.

However, since Petr Cech has left, there has been no follow-up on the deal and 'it remains to be seen' if the deal could collapse.

Cech was in-charge of scouting players in the goalkeeping department and was handling the negotiations for this deal. The former Blue left his position a week ago.

Romano adds that Slonina was 'really close' to joining in January.
