Subotic is out of favour at Dortmund and has made just six Bundesliga appearances for them in the last two seasons.

The 28-year-old spent part of the last campaign on loan at Cologne and is sure to jump at the chance of a switch to the Premier League champs.

However, Chelsea are believed to face stiff competition from a number of other English sides including Liverpool.

Subotic won two German league titles under Jurgen Klopp’s guidance between 2010 and 2012.

And he may decide an Anfield move is the better option should there also be an offer of regular football on the table.

But Subotic could ultimately end up snubbing both Chelsea and Liverpool, with a number of other Premier League teams in the running.

Leicester City are interested after seeing a £23m bid for West Brom defender Jonny Evans rejected.

The Baggiest themselves are also monitoring Subotic as they brace for an even bigger Evans offer from Manchester City.

While Stoke are looking to add one more centre-back to their squad after switching to a three-defender system in recent weeks.
