Everton target Chelsea defender Ivanovic

Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic is a transfer target for fellow Premier League club Everton.

Ivanovic has been told he can end his nine year stay at the West London club. He has played 375 games for the Blies, scoring 33 goals despite playing as either a right-back or a centre-back. Juventus have also been linked with making a move, but that particular rumour has gone quiet in the last few weeks.

He had been a regular piece in the Chelsea jigsaw over recent years, but has been restricted to just 15 appearances this term, mostly as a substitute.

The 32-year old has fallen down the pecking order under Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge this season, and is being targeted by Ronald Koeman at Everton.

The Dutch manager is eyeing the defender as a replacement for Phil Jagielka who has been linked with a departure from the club.

Jagielka has also fallen out of favour at Goodison Park under Koeman, and is a January target for former Everton boss David Moyes at Sunderland.
