The Serbian international has been in superb form for the Blues this season, and it would no doubt be a massive boost for the team to ensure his future at the club is secured.
Ivanovic, 31, is set to earn a pay rise with his new deal, with wages of around £90,000 per week believed to be on offer for the all-action right-back.
With a four-year contract on the table, it seems likely that Ivanovic would then end his career at Stamford Bridge.
