Feelers from the Stamford Bridge outfit suggested this on Saturday.
The defender’s deal is set to expire at the end of the current 2022/23 season.
It is yet unclear what the length of this new deal could be.
Chelsea’s new owners have been aiming to tie down their best performers to new deals.
Only recently, the club was able to nail down fullback, Reece James, to a new 6yr deal that sees the English man earn a reported £250, 000 weekly.
Another player that has been earmarked for a new long term contract is last season’s Chelsea Player of The Year, Mason Mount.
Goalkeeper, Mendy, is, also, locked in negotiations with the club on an improved new deal.
