Denis Zakaria joins Chelsea on loan from Juventus

Chelsea have signed Denis Zakaria on a season-long loan from Juventus.

The Blues have been looking to add another midfielder to their ranks in the final days of the transfer window, with the likes of N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic often finding themselves on the treatment table.

They approached Ajax over a €50m move for Edson Alvarez, who was intent on forcing a move to Stamford Bridge, but Chelsea could not reach an agreement with the Dutch champions.

Zakaria came to their attention and swiftly moved to agree a loan with Juventus having only completed a move to Turin back in January.
