The club has yet to agree new terms with any of the quartet leaving them facing the threat of seeing all of them walk away from Stamford Bridge at the same time.

As a result, Chelsea are drawing up a list of potential replacements with Bremer, 24, high on their list of targets.

The European champions scouts are understood to have watched Bremer in action against Empoli last week and they have been impressed by the powerful defender.

Tottenham, West Ham and Liverpool have been linked with the Brazilian, but now Chelsea are ready to join the race for the talented centre back.

Bremer has impressed in Serie A with Torino after joining from Atletico Mineiro in 2018.

And the Italian club are bracing themselves for offers for Bremer as he enters the final 18 months of his contract at Torino.

Torino paid just £5.2million for the Brazilian's services.

However, the Italians will be hoping for a substantial profit on the talent they bought three years ago.

Barcelona are reportedly in pole position to prise Azpilicueta away from Stamford Bridge in 2022 with Chelsea resigned to losing the defender.

The Blues skipper, 32, is in the final year of his contract in West London and is free to speak to foreign clubs about a transfer in January.

LaLiga giants Barca have been heavily linked with a move for the ex-Marseille ace as they look to bring him back to Spain.

And according to ESPN, Chelsea's players and staff are already fearing that the versatile defender will be on his way out next summer.
