Reports are rife that the London side would move for the Paris Saint German centre back Marquinhos. The Brazilian defender has found it hard to get regular football at PSG and a likely move to another club is just matter of time.
The defender is down the perking order in Laurent Blanc team. The coach prefers the defensive partnership of Thiago Silva and David Luiz .
Chelsea desperately needs a defender that can help stop leakages at the back. The team has conceded as much goals as 17 already.
Chelsea might round up the deal in a record time so that the player can quickly settle into the team just as the way they sign Fabregas and Costa during last year summer. Marquinhos naturally plays as centre back but could also operate from any position at the back four.
The player is also subject to various offers from top European team like Manchester United but a mouth watering deal from the blues could be difficult for the player to resist.
Last summer the player insisted that he is quite happy with the Paris based team but former Chelsea Brazilian defender Alex insisted that this is probably the right moment for the player (Marquinhos) to leave PSG and join another top European team
