It looks like Chelsea left-back Ian Maatsen is finally ready to join Borussia Dortmund! After several weeks of negotiations, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund have reached a verbal agreement that will see the 21-year-old Dutch international move from Stamford Bridge to the Westfalenstadion until the end of this season.

This rumor has officially escalated to the penultimate level of transfer rumor status, the last one that comes before an official press release from the club: Fabrizio Romano has granted it #HereWeGo status.

If that wasn’t enough confirmation for you, Ruhr Nachrichten have confirmed the verbal agreement and medical, although it does not appear that there is either an obligation or an option for BVB to purchase Maatsen from Chelsea. That option would have to be negotiated separately at the end of the season. Maatsen currently has his medical scheduled for Wednesday, which he will hopefully follow by joining the team in training in Marbella, Spain.

With this move, Borussia Dortmund have checked one box on Paul’s transfer priority list, and can move on to focusing on other priorities like the wing and central midfield.
