Chelsea are reportedly edging closer to reaching a deal with Real Madrid for the transfer of their defender Sergio Reguilon this summer.
The Blues opted for the 23-year-old Spaniard as an alternative for Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell who has been heavily linked with a move to the Stamford Bridge.
However, the Stamford Bridge outfit has been pushed back after the Foxes demanded £80 million before allowing their player to leave.
SunSport quoting ESPN reveals that negotiations between the two clubs are at an advanced stage with just a few more things just to be taken care of.

Reguilon was not part of the La Liga title triumph having spent the 2019-20 season at Sevilla under former boss Julen Lopetegui.

The defender scored twice and assisted four other goals in 31 Spanish League appearances during his loan spell. He has also established himself as one of Spain's top full-backs in the process.
Apart from Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham and Inter Milan have also shown interest in signing the defender.
Reguilon was also recently linked with a move to Everton as a replacement for retiring Leighton Baines at Goodison Park.
Reports claim they made an offer of around £18 million but Chelsea might be willing to pay more to secure his services.
Meanwhile, Sevilla are hoping they can sign the player, who spent the last season on loan with them on a permanent basis. But the player is said to be keen on a move to the Premier League.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Sergio Reguilon will be having the difficulty to choose from where to ply his trade next season as Chelsea are the latest team to show interest in the defender.
Carlo Ancelotti's Everton and La Liga side Sevilla have also been linked to the 23-year-old who had an impressive loan spell under Julen Lopetegui.
Following Leighton Baines' retirement at Goodison Park at the end of the season, Everton believe the Spanish left-back will be a formidable replacement.
