Chelsea have agreed terms with former AC Milan goalkeeper Marco Amelia, according to Sky sources.
The 33-year-old Italian, who has nine international caps, has been training at Stamford Bridge since the end of September.
In a post on Instagram, Amelia's agent Federico Pastorello said: "Dinner with #marcoamelia to celebrate the contract with Chelsea FC !!! Good luck !!"
Amelia was released by Milan in the summer of 2014 and has not had a long-term contract since.
He had a short term deal with Perugia at the end of last season but never made a first-team appearance.
Jose Mourinho is keen to have another goalkeeper as back up to Asmir Begovic, who is the only experienced goalkeeper in the squad that is currently fit to play.
First-choice Thibault Courtois is out until December with an injury while Jamal Blackman, who has deputised on the bench, is 21 and has never made an appearance for Chelsea.
