Chelsea are closing in on the signing of Marseille defender Cesar Azpilicueta, according to Goal.com.

The Spaniards representatives are understood to be in London putting the finishing touches on the move, with Chelsea believed to be paying between €8-10 million for the talented defender.

Roberto Di Matteo has been desperately looking to sign a right back this summer following the departure of Jose Bosingwa and has been linked with a whole host of names.

However, it seems his search is over with Azpilicueta the man set to battle Branislav Ivanovic for a starting spot at Stamford Bridge next season.

The 23-year-old is set to undergo a medical and agree terms on a long-term contract, but the transfer is unlikely to be confirmed in time for him to play in Sundays Premier League opener against Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium.
