Rugani is set to move to Stamford Bridge for £35m and sign a long-term contract worth over £70,000-a-week.
Chelsea’s decision to push through a deal for the 23-year-old centre-back reportedly came from incoming boss Maurizio Sarri.
The Italian is set to takeover at Stamford Bridge this summer after being replaced by Carlo Ancelotti at Napoli.
Antonio Conte is currently still in charge at Chelsea, but the club are seemingly preparing for life under Sarri by wrapping up a deal for Rugani.
