5ft 9 Highly Rated defender On His Way To Stamford To Replace Ivanovic, Mourinho Ready To Sanction Deal

As the transfer window draw closer, Chelsea are favorite to make marquee signing due to poor starts to the season campaign.

The Blues defense line has come under immense criticism this term and much of the criticism has been targeted at Serbian International Branislav Ivaovich.

The powerful Serbian defender has struggle to mark out fast and skillful players this season, which has resulted to Chelsea conceding more goals especially from his angle of defense.

Latest report according to Daily Express claims Chelsea are keeping tabs on Benfica right back Nelson Semedo. The Blues sees the highly rated right back as a potential replacement for ageing Ivanovic.

Semedo has been on fine form this season for Benfica making nine appearances and scoring a goal. He also made his international debut against Serbia in October.

Talented, young and energetic Semedo would really make a good replacement for Ivanovic.

However, I personally think Chelsea should be looking for a reliable left back and not right back.

We have experienced and talented Cesar Azpilicuet, awho is a natural right back. The Spaniard should be deployed to his natural wing while we look for a competitor for Abdul Baba Rahman at the left back.
