Darijo Srna is waiting to meet with Shakhtar Donetsk to discuss a reported offer to join Premier League champions Chelsea.
Croatia international Srna has long been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge and reports claim the Blues have made a £14million bid.
Srna is entering the final 12 months of his contract with Shakhtar and has recently suggested he is keen to step up to another level.
Capable of playing at right-back or in midfield, Srna hinted at an offer from Chelsea and is now waiting to hold talks with his Ukrainian employers.
"The deal is not done yet," Srna is quoted in The Sun.
"I must get together with the Shakhtar president as we cannot discuss such matters over the phone."
The 28-year-old's agent Damir Stimac stated last week that, if Srna is to leave Shakhtar, then it would be in the club's best interests to agree a deal this summer.
Stimac 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."
