Chelsea transfer news: World Cup star has Jose dream, Hazard to Barca, Ivanovic to Arsenal

Europa League winning midfielder, now in Brazil with Cameroon, has revealed his dream while Barcelona and Arsenal are interested in two Blues.

According to the latest Chelsea transfer news, Jose Mourinho may be on the prowl for a midfield partner to January recruit Nemanja Matic as the Blues have been linked with Sami Khedira, who - according to one Germany expert - will remain with Real Madrid, and Sevilla's loan star Stephan MBia.

Having won the Europa League whilst on loan from QPR to the Spanish club last season, MBia now finds himself battling a lost cause for Cameroon in the FIFA World Cup tournament in Brazil, however, he still has one ambition - to claim the Champions League prize at club-level.

The player, 28, also said it would be a "dream" to be coached by Mourinho.

He said: I have the utmost respect for Sevilla, but it will be difficult for me to stay because I want to play at the highest level and try to win the Champions League. My dream is to be coached by Mourinho, because I think he is a great manager."

MBia has represented The Indomitable Lions in both of their World Cup matches to date, both of them defeats, but has returned comparable statistics to his Sevilla form.

In the 4-0 defeat to Croatia, he provided a dribbling link to the attack from the depths of midfield, but was beaten by Ivica Olic's run for the first concession. Against Mexico, he was also partial to an attacking run, yet was exposed at the back. If he is to impress Mourinho, he will need to show an aptitude for all-round play.

MBia has a valuation of £8 million.

Elsewhere, just as the Eden Hazard to Paris Saint-Germain stories may have been dying down, another club enters the fray as Barcelona reportedly view the Belgium attacker as an alternative target should they fail in their bid for Luis Suarez of Liverpool, Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero or Manchester United front-man Robin van Persie.

Barcelona have also been linked with a move for Napoli forward Gonzalo Higuain.

And finally, Branislav Ivanovic's protracted contractual dealing with Chelsea has ensured that the Serbian's name is touted to be potentially involved in a transfer, with Arsenal believed to be interested in the full back due to the imminent exit of Gunners mainstay Bacary Sagna.

The Daily Mail reported on the story today but even by their own admission the switch would be "highly unlikely."
