Chelsea are reportedly targeting SL Benfica defender Antonio Silva as a possible replacement for Thiago Silva.

There is still a lot of speculation surrounding the players that Mauricio Pochettino will look to sign during the Summer window, especially now that Thiago Silva is expected to leave the club at the end of the season.

That has led to some rumours in the media which have claimed that CHELSEA tried to get a transfer deal done for Silva in the last few days of the January window, but failed to get a deal done.

The young Benfica defender has made over 70 senior appearances for Benfica, registering six goals. He’s a key player, talking Benfica to second in the Primeira Liga

According to El National t, renowned agent Jorge Mendes is trying to negotiate a deal between the two clubs for Silva and is eager for the lad to make the move to the Premier League giants.

Silva has been very impressive this season and it would be interesting to see if he could handle the pressure of playing for one of the big clubs in the Premier League.

And the fact that he would add depth to the squad for not a lot of money, it could be a great buy from that CHELSEA board and could be a player that adds some more quality to that Blues squad.

Many CHELSEA fans would like to see a striker make the move to the club in the coming window – but Silva would still be a good signing this coming transfer window.
