Italian source TutoMercatoWeb reports that the Premier League champions are interested in Everton right-back Seamus Coleman.
According to the report, manager Jose Mourinho has identified the Irish defender as one of the signings to help turn around the disastrous campaign this season.
TMW states that the negotiations are already in advanced stages between the clubs. Player is currently valued at £13m and his price is skyrocketing as you see in the below graph.
This signing suggests that Mourinho has lost faith in his defender Branislav Ivanovic, who has suffered a major drop in his form this season and has been culpable for a large number of goals the Blues have conceded this season.
