Chelsea's second summer signing imminent

Chelsea are set to clinch the signature of rising Swiss star Jonas Elmer from Grasshopper Zurich.

Elmer caught the eye of Chelsea’s scouting network during last month’s European Under-17 Championship in Italy where Switzerland lost in the group phase.

The 17-year-old left-sided player was due to undergo a medical at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday before agreeing personal terms on a three-year contract.

Elmer is the Blues second summer signing following the capture of Bristol Rovers’ Scott Sinclair. The 16-year-old, who had been at Rovers since he was seven, signed scholarship forms at Stamford Bridge earlier this month.
