Chelsea will kick-start their new Premier League season in two weeks from now under new head-coach Maurizio Sarri who joined the club earlier this summer to replace his compatriot Antonio Conte.
The Blues went through a torrid season last campaign under Conte a season after he guarded the Premier League club to the Premier League title.
As per report from Sky Sports, Former England international goalkeeper Rob Green is set to undergo his medicals with Premier League club Chelsea today as he closes in on a free transfer.
Sky Sports claimed this on their official Twitter account that the 38-year-old, who saw his contract with Huddersfield Town come to an end this summer, is set for a bargain move to Chelsea to work with Maurizio Sarri.

The goalkeeper, who stands at 6ft2 inches, has 267 Premier League appearances to his name, but failed to register a single appearances for the Terriers last season as he was kept as back up and could be on the £80k-per-week wages.
His move to Chelsea stands as one of the most bizarre transfer of the summer as no one, not even the goalkeeper himself, could ever imagine he would be joining Chelsea after leaving Huddersfield Town, as everything looked like its over when his contract come to an end with David Wagner’s side.
Chelsea are on the lookout for back up for Thibaut Courtois and Willy Caballero and they feel Green’s experience in the league is enough to warrant him a short term deal with them, while he helps the young talents coming through the system in their own development.
Joining the Blues is that bad at any means, just an unexpected one, and if Green can end his playing time with a couple of matches for the Blues, it would be a fitting send off to one of the longest serving players in England’s divisions.
