With just about an hour left in the 2017 summer transfer window, Chelsea are scrambling all resources to get at least a couple signings in before the deadline. And while the pursuits of Ross Barkley, Fernando Llorente, and Riyad Mahrez — not to mention the multitude of other names linked over the past few months — look set to end in disappointment, the club are all but certain to make good on a new wing-back in Davide Zappacosta from Torino and a new central midfielder in Danny Drinkwater from Leicester City.

Both players are now undergoing their medicals, with Zappacosta flying to London earlier today and Drinkwater just arriving at Cobham.

Theoretically not all i’s have to be dotted and not all t’s have to crossed, but all relevant documentation needs to be submitted to FIFA’s transfer system before the 11pm deadline in order for the transfers to become official.

Let’s hope the Wi-Fi’s working (we no longer use fax machines).
