Chelsea have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Portuguese goalkeeper Eduardo from Dinamo Zagreb, according to the Croatian club’s boss.
Zlatko Kranjcar revealed on Thursday morning that the 33-year-old ‘keeper is bound for the Premier League. According to SunSports, Kranjcar revealed Eduardo is bound for the Premier League where he will support Chelsea first-choice stopper Thibaut Courtois.
The Portuguese goalkeeper is 33 and is likely to be heading to Chelsea to support first-choice keeper Thibaut Courtois
The former Braga man has already played four league games this season to add to the 66 he has already racked up across the previous two campaigns.
The veteran has not played for Antonio Conte before but he had a successful 2010-11 season with Genoa in Italy where he could well have caught his new boss’ eye.
The well-travelled stopper is unlikely to rival the giant Belgian at Chelsea but will be a suitable back-up. It could also be a precursor for Asmir Begovic leaving Stamford Bridge in search of more first-team action.
The 29-year-old started 15 league matches last season, with Courtois sidelined with suspensions and injuries, but could be tempted away from west London if guaranteed regular football at a top club.
