Chelsea round-up: Full-backs targeted; fight with Spanish giants for defender; Hazard injury boost

As Manchester City confirmed the signing of Real Madrid defender Danilo, the Standard say that Chelsea have turned their attentions to Southampton duo Ryan Bertrand and Cedric Soares. The full-back pairing are both targets to compete with Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso as wing-backs.
The news follows the club missing out on their two first choice options in Juventus’ Alex Sandro and Real Madrid’s Danilo. These two targets are seemingly less ambitious, but Southampton will not part with either player easily. Given that Bertrand came through the ranks at Stamford Bridge, it could be embarrassing having to spend big to bring him back to west London.
The club are also eyeing another defensive target in Nice defender Malang Sarr. Sky Sports say that the Blues have joined Real Madrid and Barcelona in tracking the 18-year-old, who has a €40 million (£36 million) release clause in his existing contract, which is set to run until 2021.
