Chelsea prepare back up plan to land Lescott
Joleon Lescott is a potential target for Chelsea Football Club.
The Blues are desperate to sign a top-class defender this month, after injuries to John Terry and Alex highlighted a lack of depth in their current squad.
Carlo Ancelotti’s top target is Brazilian international David Luiz, and he remains hopeful of luring him from Benfica in a deal worth around £23million.
However, if the Portuguese club refuse to sell, the Daily Mail claim the Londoners will launch an audacious bid to take Lescott, 28, from Manchester City in an £8.5million deal.
