Chelsea has agreed a last-minute loan for Denis Zakaria with the Serie A giants, which also includes a buy-option reportedly around £30m.
It took a few extra minutes to announce this past the 11 pm deadline on September 1, but eventually, it arrived.
The 25-year-old developed into a defensive force in the Borussia Mönchengladbach midfield and moved to Juventus back in January.
He had been linked with a few other teams as well this summer, but Chelsea swooped in today and got things done.
