Chelsea wants PSG’s Thiago Silva


Chelsea are reportedly in advanced talks to secure a deal for 35-year-old Paris Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva as Frank Lampard looks to solve his defensive woes ahead of the new season.

The Brazilian is preparing to make his farewell appearance for the French champions in Sunday’s Champions League final and with no immediate plans to retire, he has been shopped round for his next move.

While there was interest in a return to Italy, the Athletic report that Chelsea have been in ‘advanced talks for several days’ although the report adds a deal ‘is not regarded as close’ due to issues around contract length.
