Chelsea are considering a January swoop for Tottenham full-back Ben Davies, according to The Sun.
The Wales international would help the Blues meet their home-grown player quota and would reportedly be available for £20m.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has been linked with several British defenders, including Burnley’s Michael Keane and Middlesbrough’s Ben Gibson.
Mauricio Pochettino regularly rotates his full-backs, but £20-million-rated Davies is predominantly second choice at White Hart Lane behind Danny Rose.
He put in impressive performances for the Dragons at Euro 2016 as part of a three-man defence – something Conte could utilise in his favoured formation.
League rules state eight home-grown players are required in a matchday squad and Davies fits the bill.
Davies, who moved to north London from South Wales in 2014 for £10m, has made just two appearances for Pochettino’s men so far this season
