Chelsea have reportedly targeted Monaco midfielder Lucas Bernardi for a summer switch to Stamford Bridge.

The Argentina international has been in sparkling form for the French side this season, helping them to excel domestically and in Europe.

The Principality side will play Real Madrid in the last eight of the UEFA Champions League, while they are also four points clear at the top of the French table.

The player's agent has already claimed that he has been in negotiations with Chelsea about a summer switch to West London.

Billionaire owner Roman Abramovich was present at Stade Louis II for Monaco's 1-0 win over Lokomotiv Moscow that saw them into the quarter finals of the Champions League.

It is not known if he was there expressly to cast an eye over Bernardi but French reports suggest that he is already close to moving on.
