Chelsea have won the race to sign Tosin Adarabioyo


Chelsea are zoning in on their first signing of the Enzo Maresca era as, according to Sky Sports, Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo is set to complete his medical at Stamford Bridge next week before putting pen to paper on a long-term deal.

Formerly of Manchester City, the 26-year-old has enjoyed a quietly brilliant campaign under Marco Silva in 2023/24 and, as a result, had piqued serious interest from some of the top Premier League sides – Manchester United and Newcastle United included.

Maresca and his entourage, who is set to be announced as Chelsea’s new manager when the paperwork has been finalised, have won the race for his sought-after signature, however. Manchester-born Adarabioyo is, according to BBC Sportkeen on the move to the five-time Premier League champions.

Should all go well with his medical, the imposing gem is set to sign on a free transfer as his Craven Cottage contract comes to its end at the end of this month. Following the departure of Thiago Silva, a spot at centre-back is open at Stamford Bridge, with Levi Colwill, Axel Diasi, Benoit Badiashile and Wesley Fofana likely to be Maresca’s first choice options in the heart of his back line.
