Chelsea are interested in signing Real Madrid right-back Danilo, according to reliable journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

Di Marzio reports that the Premier League champions have been monitoring Danilo’s situation at the Bernabeu since the January transfer window, and remain in the running to secure his signature.

However, Chelsea’s pursuit of the Brazilian will not be straightforward. Di Marzio believes that Italian champions Juventus will go head-to-head with the Blues in the race to sign Danilo, and are preparing an offer in the region of £13M.

Sky Sports reported at the time of Danilo’s arrival in Madrid that Los Blancos parted with as much as £23M to sign him, but he has failed to live up to that hefty fee, and if Di Marzio is to be believed, he could be on the move once more.

Victor Moses remains our only natural option at right-wing-back, it would certainly be a good idea to sign another this summer in order to provide him with genuine competition. Only time will tell if Danilo is to be that man.
