Thiago Silva is reportedly scheduled to undergo his Chelsea medical on Thursday ahead of a free transfer.
With his contract at Paris Saint-Germain having come to an end, the 35-year-old is contemplating ending his eight-year spell at Parc des Princes.
Despite the French giants allegedly making a last-ditch attempt to convince the Brazilian to extend his stay in France, it appears likely that the veteran will move to Stamford Bridge.
According to Sky Sports News, the centre-back will undergo a medical with club staff later this week.
Given the restrictions in place with regards to coronavirus, tests may be held away from England in order to avoid a mandatory 14-day quarantine period at this stage of the summer.
Having featured for PSG in the Champions League final on Sunday evening, Silva will now take some time off before resuming training next month.
