Chelsea are in ‘advanced’ negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain’s veteran center back, according to reports.

Frank Lampard is in desperate need of defensive reinforcements after his side conceded 54 goals in the Premier League last season.

Declan Rice and Lewis Dunk have emerged as possible targets, but will cost around £80 million and £50 million, respectively.

35-year-old Silva, however, is available on a free transfer with his contract set to expire this month.

According to the Athletic, talks between the player and the west London club are progressing, but a deal is not close to being struck yet.

There are several issues yet to be settled, including the length of contract that would be handed to the Brazilian.

Silva is said to be keen on a move to the Premier League and despite turning 36 later this year, still believes in his ability to perform at the highest level.

When addressing his future ahead of PSG’s Champions League final against Bayern Munich on Sunday, the experienced defender refused to rule out the possibility that he could still stay at the club. ‘Destiny is in our hands,’ the 35-year-old told the club’s website.

‘The club turns 50 and it’s the last year of my deal. I gave everything I could. ‘If I can continue to play with the club, we will discuss it and make the best decision.’
