Chelsea are closing in on the £7.5 million signing of Croat starlet Andrej Kramaric.
According to Goal.com, Chelsea are planning to secure the deal in January, with club representatives flying out to Croatia to talk over a deal with his current employers, HNK Rijeka.
Reports suggest that the Blues have tabled a bid for the player, and have also proposed a friendly game against the Croatian club, when their new stadium opens.
Kramaric is previously said to have travelled to London, with his father Josip, with the 23-year-old midfielder also attracting interest from Tottenham Hotspur.
