Real Madrid full-back Fabio Coentrao is hopeful of a move to Chelsea this summer, according to the Telegraph.

The report claims that Jose Mourinho, who previously managed the Portuguese international at the Bernabeu, could attempt to bring the player to England in the upcoming window, as the Blues boss goes in search of improving his squad ahead of the 2015/16 campaign. 

Coentrao has struggled in Spain under the guidance of Carlo Ancelotti this term, with Marcelo often preferred at left-back, and it now appears that he's ready to leave the club behind sooner rather than later. 

It remains to be seen as to whether the Blues hierarchy place a bid for his services anytime soon, but he'd no doubt improve Mourinho's options at the Bridge. 

At the end of the day, at 27-years-old, Coentrao would bring a great deal of experience with him to Chelsea, and would prove a versatile member of the squad, as he's capable of playing at full-back and in midfield.

He told RMC, as quoted by ESPN: "Of course. I am thinking of nothing but that.

"I'm currently playing in the best team in England, I'm not thinking about another team."

Wilshere, who has endured a tricky spell in north London because of a number of injury problems will no doubt be hoping for a successful 2015/16 campaign, but Robson believes he should be playing his football away from the Gunners. 

He stated: “I think it is the right time for Jack Wilshere to leave.

“He will learn more about the game if he went to either Man City or Chelsea. He would learn the defensive side of the game, as well as the attacking side of the game. He would a better all-round player.
