Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid are three clubs interested in bringing Sevilla defender Alberto Moreno to their team in the January transfer window, reports the Daily Mail.

The 21-year-old defender is eligible to play in the Champions League which makes him an attractive target for all three sides, as players from bigger clubs will probably be cup-tied.

Chelsea are looking at Moreno as a long-term replacement for England star Ashley Cole, although they're also looking at Southampton's Luke Shaw.

José Mourinho is said to be a big admirer of Moreno, who recently made his debut for Spain, and they sent European scout Mick Doherty to watch the youngster in recent weeks.

It's believed they are ready to launch a January bid above £20million, with Moreno's buy-out clause being £25million.

David Moyes is looking at Moreno as Patrice Evra's long-term cover, after missing out on Real Madrid's Fabio Coentrao in the summer, who has also been linked to a move to Spurs.

Their number one target is Everton's Leighton Baines, but if he opts to stay at the Toffees then a move for Moreno may be a better option.

With some of the Premier League's top left-backs reaching the end of their contracts, maybe it's time to see some fresh talent in the back four of the Premier League's top teams.
