Chelsea appear to have wrapped up a deal for 18-year old Mario Pasalic

According to reports in Croatia, Chelsea have agreed to a €2 million fee to acquire midfielder Mario Pasalic. They've also reportedly come to terms with the player, agreeing to a deal that will see him paid about £4,000 per week. There has been no confirmation from either club yet, but after Hajduk Split confirmed yesterday that the player was traveling to London, there seems little reason to doubt the validity of today's reports.

Several other clubs showed serious interest in the player, with Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, and Lazio all being mentioned in this report.

Pasalic will almost certainly spend the remainder of the season on loan, though where he'll end up is unclear at this point. Being deadline day, a return to his current club would seem the most probable outcome.
