Bayern Munich planning summer moves for Chelsea and Everton defenders

German giants Bayern Munich are looking to bolster their backline this summer and want Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic and Everton’s Seamus Coleman, according to reports in Germany.

Pep Guardiola sees the right-back spot as an area which needs strengthening and is looking to the Premier League for a replacement for current starter, Rafinha.

Bayern’s interest in Coleman was reported last month but now the Bundesliga leaders are looking at Ivanovic too, according to Bild.

Guardiola is believed to be a big fan of the versatile Serbian defender, who can operate at right-back or in the heart of defence, but Chelsea would be reluctant to letting him leave.

Ivanovic’s current Chelsea contract expires in the summer of 2016 so Bayern are hoping to sign the 31 year old in a cut-price deal.

Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are also keeping an eye on Ivanovic’s situation and if he is not offered a new deal at Chelsea in the coming months, the Blues can expect to receive offers.

Ivanovic has played in all 29 of Chelsea’s Premier League games this season, scoring an impressive four goals with five assists, and is an integral part of Jose Mourinho’s team.

As well as Coleman and Ivanovic, Bayern are also said to be looking at Italian right-back Matteo Darmian, who plays for Serie A side Torino and is also a target of Manchester United.

Who would be a better signing for Bayern Munich – Coleman or Ivanovic?
