Chelsea are targeting a January swoop for Santos starlet Thiago Maia, but Martin Caceres is not a Blues target, reports have claimed.
The transfer window may have closed but that is not stopping speculation over who could potentially arrive at Stamford Bridge, either now, or in the January transfer window.
Caceres is without a club and reports have suggested that Chelsea boss Antonio Conte could look to bolster his defence further by offering the Uruguay international a deal.
However, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has dismissed such claims and says that Conte is happy with his defence the way it is.
Romano took to twitter to make the claim, and also revealed a move for Maia could be in the pipeline, although a deal would be difficult to get over the line.
”No confirms or updates at the moment about the name of Martin Caceres as Chelsea target,” he tweeted. “Conte is happy with the actual defence. And Chelsea will insist for Thiago Maia (Santos) on January. Not easy but he is a target.”
