Chelsea are reportedly planning on making a £20million move for Everton defender Seamus Coleman next summer.

Despite the Blues having an established player in Branislav Ivanovic at the right-back position, it is clear that the Serbian is more comfortable playing in his natural position as a centre-back.

With Blues captain John Terry reaching the twilight of his career, Ivanovic will probably move to the centre-back position to replace him, leaving the right-back position vacant for new signings, even if Cesar Azpilicueta is a natural right fullback.

And Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho reportedly feels that Coleman is the perfect player to replace Ivanovic in the right-back position, according to the Metro.

However, the Blues will certainly face a lot of competition for the Irish fullback's signature as he has managed to attract a lot of attention following excellent performances in the 2013/14 season.

It is believed that Coleman is interested in making a switch to Manchester United, having been an ardent supporter of the club when he was a boy.

Still, Chelsea may be able to lure Coleman with Champions League football, if Manchester United again fail to finish in the top four of the Premier League, as the defender is reportedly keen on playing in Europe's elite competition.

Meanwhile, Chelsea playmaker has again dismissed speculations of him leaving the Blues for Paris Saint-Germain despite the super rich Ligue 1 outfit continuing to show an interest in his signature.

PSG, who bought David Luiz from Chelsea for a reported £40 million this summer, have been continually linked to Hazard over the summer, even though Mourinho has stated that he has no interest in letting the Belgian leave in the near future.

It is believed that Chelsea are looking to offer a new five-year contract worth £200,000-per-week to the 23-year-old Belgian to ward away PSG's interest.

However that step doesn't seem too necessary as Hazard, who arrived from Lille for £32 million in the summer of 2012, has himself stated that he has no intentions of leaving Chelsea for PSG.

"PSG are in the same world than Chelsea," Hazard told Canal+ "But, to be a top club they need to win the Champions League. I'm fine with Chelsea and this is where I want to continue to grow. PSG are not in my head."

The 23-year-old Belgian, who says that he may return to France in the future, insists he will only play for Lille.

"Move back to Ligue 1? Maybe one day. But only for Lille," said Hazard, who added that Ligue 1 despite being a "great league" is "not the best" in Europe.
