The Daily Mirror are reporting that Blues manager Antonio Conte is eager to strengthen his left-back options with Cesar Azpilicueta currently first-choice and Baba Rahman moving to Schalke 04 on loan.
The same article states that Chelsea’s Premier League title rivals Arsenal, Champions League holders Real Madrid and Serie A giants Roma have all shown an interest in the Swiss defender.
Conte made a winning start to his Chelsea reign on Monday night after the Blues were 2-1 winners against West Ham United at Upton Park thanks to Diego Costa’s 89th-minute winner.
The Blues manager, who was named as Guus Hiddink’s successor earlier this year, signed Belgium international Michy Batshuayi in a £33m deal from Ligue 1 side Marseille at the start of July.
Conte has also landed Leicester City’s title-winning midfielder N’Golo Kante last month as the Blues coach bolstered his midfield options.
Both new signings made their Chelsea debuts against West Ham on Monday night.
