Chelsea is getting ready to welcome one more Belgian top player in his strong team.

Announced insistently on Everton's side, midfielder Axel Witsel, could finally betray the Toffees and join a big club of the English championship. According to The Sun, it is Chelsea that has the most chances of hosting the player.

Exiled for four years in Russia at Zenit St. Petersburg, the former Benfica player is finally getting closer to Europe. According to British media an agreement has even been reached between the Blues and the player's agents already. The only problem now will be convincing the Russians that are asking for the colossal amount of $66,4 million, whereas their player is a year away from the end of his contract.

The 27-year-old was a very strong player during the Euro with Belgium and has strong arguments to seduce Antonio Conte who is looking for an extra midfielder. Witsel will be joining the big Belgian community already present with the Blues: Hazard, Courtois and Batshuayi.
