Chelsea has reached an agreement for the Argentine midfielder as a direct replacement for Cesc Fabregas who joined AS Monaco last week.

Leandro Paredes has agreed on terms to join the Stamford Bridge outfit as the club has taken a further step to make a bid of £26.8 to Zenit St Petersburg for the services of the midfielder, according to report in Gazzetta dello Sport.

Chelsea is set to change his mind as they are ready to give him a four-and-a-half year contract with a basic salary worth around £80,000-a-week.

Zenit is yet to agree on a deal with Chelsea and if the club is unable to secure the services of the Argentine forward they would go for Cagliari star Nicolo Barella in a bid to replace Fabregas.
