English giants Chelsea plan to make a move for Sevilla budding star Alberto Moreno to replace English veteran Ashley Cole at left back, according to reports.

Cole turns 33 next month, and Jose Mourinho is seeking a young full back. The Sunday People suggests Cole will be phased out of the team over the next year, with Moreno eyed up to replace him.

The Blues aim to enquire about the Spaniard in January when the transfer window opens, with the price tag coming through at around £20million, the paper claims.

The 21-year-old has many pursuers, including European giants Real Madrid and Manchester United, the report adds, so Roman Abramovich might have to reach slightly deeper into his wallet than first thought.
