Chelsea could sign Paris Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva on a free transfer this summer, according to a report.

Chelsea are reportedly considering the possibility of signing experienced central defender Thiago Silva.

The 35-year-old has again been a key player for Paris Saint-Germain this season, making 34 appearances in all competitions, but he will be out of contract ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Silva will lead PSG into Sunday's Champions League final against Bayern Munich before becoming a free agent, and there is believed to be a host of clubs interested in his signature.

According to The Telegraph, Chelsea are one of the sides in the mix, with the Premier League giants seriously considering a move for the Brazilian in the coming weeks.

The report claims that Frank Lampard's desire to bolster his defence next term could see the Blues sign a player who has spent the last eight years in the French capital.

Silva has won seven Ligue 1 titles during his time with PSG and will be bidding to help the club land their first ever European Cup on Sunday night.
