German newspaper Bild are reporting that Chelsea are in talks to bring Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic to Stamford Bridge in a €21 Million deal.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men are currently going through a significant dip in form that is threatening to undermine their whole season, which has now prompted the Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to finally dip in to his deep pockets once again.

Neven Subotic is considered one of the best up and coming centre backs in Europe and Chelsea are not the only ones chasing the Serbian international and his form this season has helped take Borussia Dortmund well clear at the top of the Bundesliga and as such his side will be reticent to sell the 22 year old.
Carlo Ancelotti is looking to beef up his defensive options as well as trying to reverse the ageing nature of his Stamford Bridge squad and a move for the man dubbed the ‘Next Nemanja Vidic” would helpfully help resolve both issues.
Chelsea are of course in the middle of a horrible series of results and will hope to bring Subotic in this month to help push them back into the title chase race.
