Chelsea are close to making their third signing of the summer.
Antonio Conte has already brought Michy Batshuayi and N'Golo Kante with him to Stamford Bridge and according to Dinamo Zagreb coach Zlatko Kranjcar, another player will link up with the Italian next week.
Kranjcar has confirmed that Chelsea have made a very good offer for 33-year-old goalkeeper Eduardo and expects the deal to go through after the second leg of Zagreb's Champions League qualifying tie against Salzburg next Wednesday.
So not quite the big name the Blues' fans would have been hoping for given their continued efforts to sign Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli.
The latest developments on that saga suggest Chelsea have made another move for the strong centre-back with a deal worth £60 million now on the table.
But for now, the supporters may have to make do with Eduardo, who is expected to play little more than a supporting role behind Thibaut Courtois and Asmir Begovic pecking order to be Chelsea's No. 1.
It is unlikely either of the club's current keepers are in danger of leaving west London so Eduardo is expected to play a similar to that of Marco Amelia last season.
Amelia was brought in while Courtois was injured but failed to make a single appearance and was subsequently released at the end of the campaign.
When asked if Eduardo would be leaving the Croatian side, the Zagreb manager told the press: “I think so. Eduardo has been given an amazing opportunity to leave for a big club like Chelsea.
"With his arrival, we gained security in our team, since my time in the club he has defended his goal very well."
Kranjcar added: "But the situation is that he is leaving, may he have all the good luck in the big club.”
The Portuguese keeper has been at Zagreb since 2014 but his list of former clubs includes Braga, Genoa and Benfica and his experience across Europe will prove handy if he is actually required to feature at some point in his Chelsea career.
