Chelsea could reignite their interest in Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos in January,Football Insidersources understand.

The Londoners made a deadline-day bid for the centre-back during the summer window but were knocked back by the French club.

Chelsea remain in the market for a top-class defender with his best years ahead of him and will monitor Marquinhos during the coming months.

Jose Mourinhos team have also not given up hope of enticing John Stones from Everton after failing with a flurry of bids for the England international during the summer.

Chelsea are prepared to pay a 35million-plus fee for a new centre-back.

Brazilian Marquinhos, 21, is currently rated at around 45million by PSG, who signed him from Roma in 2013 for a fee of 25million. It was a then world record sum for a teenager but was beaten over the subsequent two summers by the transfer fees that Manchester United paid for Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial.
