Chelsea are closely following Bayern Munich defender Breno, hoping to sign him during the winter transfer window.
The Daily Mail are reporting the Blues are keen on the 21-year-old Brazilian, who is returning from a cruciate ligament injury. The English giants had made inquiries about the player prior to his injury in March, and wish to capture the player's signature this time around.
The Brazil Under-23 captain recently hinted that he would look to leave the club if he could cement a spot in the Bavarians' starting XI.
Breno joined the German giants in 2007 from Sao Paulo, but has only made 13 appearances for the side. He spent part of last season on loan at Nurnburg before injuring himself.
