Porto winger Christian Atsu is set to undergo a medial on Friday afternoon ahead of a £3.5m move to Chelsea after agreeing terms over a five-year contract, according to Sky Sports News.

The 21-year-old has just one year left on his current deal with Porto and it seems the Portuguese outfit have decided to cash in now rather than risk losing him for nothing in 12 months time.

Reports emerged last week claiming that Chelsea had beaten Liverpool and Spurs to the players signature just days after trumping their rivals to Brazilian attacker Willian.

It seems the speculation has proven accurate with Sky Sports reporting today that the Blues have agreed a £3.5m deal with Porto and Atsu is now set to undergo his medical this afternoon after agreeing terms over a five-year deal.

However, the Ghana international is expected to head straight out on a season-long loan to Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem in order to gain further first team experience before coming back to Stamford Bridge next summer to challenge for a first team place.

The report indicates that Victor Moses could also be on his way out of Chelsea before the transfer window closes with West Brom thought to be showing an interest in the Nigerian attacker – who has been left out of the squad for tonight Super Cup against Bayern Munich.

      Every time Moses can go!!!. Is Atsu better than Victor moses? If victor Moses was in another team you will say buy victor Moses and let that or this leave. He makes all Chelsea defence leggy when playing against us when still at wigan. Give Moses his playing chance and see tap his potential now or let him go in peace. Remember the sometime unwanted Sturridge today at Liverpool see his performance

    Atsu maybe good. Dat’s 4 the future, moses has been impressive al through last season though sometime his wide football doesn’t suit d team. Chelsea shld loan him if he’s not in mour’s plan rather than outright sale cos he’s stil important. Sturridge is a lesson.

    charsel you are right, now i hate JOSE for wot is doin to d NIGERIA player’s. His building other countries player and left our players, while some nigeria FOOLs dont think deep. Who is better than MOSE among this two player’s shurl and van guegle ( justin). Some one should tell why MOSE should GO ONLONE or SOLD. He now left HIM out of super cup, he has forgetton BENETES did that with JOHN MIKEL OBI and faill to deliver d troph.

    Everyone is ryt including Charles. He’s a gud coach and he knows wat he’s doin, i’m nt supportin him buh put urself in his shoes and see wot u r going 2 do Chelsea coach, he’s doin dis coz he want success, every1 is expectin him 2 lift d main trophy dis season… Tank God Atsu is goin on loan, and i dont tink moses pattern fits chelsea, he plays wide, he dribbles but he’s finnishing or across is fair.
    So, i tink he shud go on loan so dat he can earn a place in world cup

    Ah! U people should allow MOURIHNO 2 die b4 u bury him. He knw d best reason y he left MOSES out of d SUPER CUP. Besides, he hv nt send him out on loan yet. So lets keep our fingers cross nd c wat MOU will do wit our NIGERIA players.

    Where will Christian Atsu (21) fit in himself into Chelsea squad while Mourinho was busy proving our experienced players to be amatuer?,..look at the likes of Mikel,Moses,Mata and others,..hm,this man self,..is he suffering from mental disorderliness?

    mourinho sholud think twice for wat he is doing to nigeria players and to the spain players too hw come chelsea is not playing the tic tac football we used to play again and change the everytin by playing police football kick and follow ball today i pray dat will win bayern today by defending through the game

    I disagree with glover. Chelsea never played ticki taka. What is your problem if the Nigerians and Spanians are not involved in our matches and we still win. I think Chelsea is better without the Nigerians. Atsu is a good player and we would love to have him in our team. COME ON CHELSA!

    i tink wat chelsea is doing may soon make young talents snub them. look at the number of their youngsters on loan all round europe and those in the academy and yet they are still buying. let them show us that they can develop those at their disposal first. the truth is dat young talent are bound emerge every year.so r dey goin to buy anyone that receiv some publicity in d media?

    l don’t understand what is worrying blacks, we all stand up and air what we like, my friends being in the hot seat is not easy as we think, we say what we want behind the screens, let join them at the war front and we Will really smell it, let leave the man to do his work, do someone teach you what to do in your office, hell no, C.Atsu is a good player, and mind you, the club buys and sells players so that is what ? Business, this runs the club efficiently, have you taught of that. Roman is a BUSINESS MAN……..where do you think he gets his money from?

    my problem wit morinho s selfishness nd personal interest, jst take a look at last 9t game, lampard s old nd week still he played 120mins, ramires s tied with yellow card still he left hm til he was sent out wit redcard, I dnt blame ramires for the tackle s out of tiredness, mikel s dia at de bench wit mata, ok ribery was very fit nd well displayed wot stop morinho frm bringing in asceliquata to help ivanovic he nw brought in championsleague calamity player tery who afforded sending urs home. Tores sopose to end de game only change arrnd de midfield nd defence . Morinho s a special coach he know al ds bt jst sentimental nd personal interest for his old players
