Chelsea fans convinced Cedric Soares is signing after London photo

Southampton defender Cedric Soares tweeted a photo on Monday night of himself in London earlier in the day, and Chelsea fans are convinced that the Portugal international could be close to signing for them.

The Blues have been heavily linked with a move for the 25-year-old in recent weeks with Antonio Conte looking to bring in competition for Victor Moses in the right wing-back spot, but reports in the Evening Standard suggested that Saints would only accept a silly offer for him.

However, the latest photo upload with the caption ‘Big city life’ has certainly caused some optimism amongst fans of the Premier League holders, with the right-back obviously spending time in the capital following his side’s 3-2 win against West Ham United at St Mary’s on Saturday.

Chelsea supporters were quick to give their response to the post via social media, with many taking the opportunity to welcome him to the club.
