Croatia international Darijo Srna's proposed transfer from Shakhtar Donetsk to Chelsea has moved a step closer after the midfielder revealed that he wanted to talk to the Ukrainian side's president to discuss the move.
Reports claim the Blues have made a £14million bid for Srna who has just one year left on his current Shakhtar contract.
Srna, who can also play at right-back, was quoted in The Sun as saying:"The deal is not done yet.
"I must get together with the Shakhtar president as we cannot discuss such matters over the phone."
Last week, the 28-year-old's agent, Damir Stimac, had said:"If Shakhtar want to complete a successful transfer of Darijo to one of Europe's top clubs, it would be best to do so this summer.
"He will be happy to remain in Donetsk or have the opportunity to play in the top league."
