Russia topflight outfit Zenit midfielder Leandro Paredes has hinted that his move to the English Premier League outfit Chelsea is as good as done after his recent activity on the social media.

Leandro Paredes has been linked with a move to the West London outfit with reports that they are already preparing a bid for him before this January winter transfer window reopens.

The star midfielder is tipped to replace Spanish star Cesc Fabregas who just joined French Ligue 1 outfit Monaco and former Leicester City star Danny Drinkwater.

Manager Maurizio Sarri is believed to be troubled by the fact that two midfielders would be leaving the club which is the reason why he is keen on having Leandro Paredes.

The Italian boss noted that former Italian Serie A outfit Napoli player Jorginho will be overstretched and left with no backup as he allegedly tells the management to do all in their powers to secure new additions in the team.

However, the West London side are now looking comfortable in the fourth position after North London side Arsenal feel to West Ham United at the weekend.

With the race still believed to be on, Chelsea will do all it takes to ensure they have a solid team to end in the top four.
