The Blues are not exactly starved of options in that position at the moment, but it may be that Jose Mourinho is keen to bring in the former Ipswich Town man as a replacement for Filipe Luis, who has struggled to impress this season since making the move to Stamford Bridge from Atletico Madrid.

The Brazilian has been unable to dislodge Cesar Azpilicueta from the left-back slot, and Cresswell may prove a better option for rotating with the Spaniard in that part of the pitch next season.

West Ham would reportedly consider another raid on Championship side Ipswich if the 25-year-old did leave for Chelsea, with Tyrone Mings on their radar, according to the Daily Mail.

Meanwhile, the Hammers could also use the £20m to spend on Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke, whom the Mail claim they are also chasing this summer.
