The towering 6ft 3in defender has gone from strength-to-strength in the game and scouts from a number of the Premier League big boys were alerted of his availability.
In fact, as well as Chelsea, the quartet of Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City were all made aware of his situation.
But it appears that Chelsea have brought the deal to fruition as they go in search of redemption as the season approaches its latter stages.
The youngster won't require a work permit as he holds a Polish passport so could start battling with the likes of John Terry, Gary Cahill and Kurt Zouma for a place in the Blues' back-line. The same report claims that Major League Soccer are set to announce the deal later today.
Chelsea fans will also be hoping to see striker Alexandre Pato arrive before the deadline. The former AC Milan striker appears to be on his way to west London after calling Chelsea his new home.
