A move to Panathinaikos for Chelsea defender Alex is on.

Alex's representative Giuliano Bertolluci told Greek newspaper Derby: "It's true that people of Panathinaikos called me. We discussed about a possible move of Alex to Panathinaikos.

"I think that it's very difficult to have news on this case because my client doesn't want to leave Chelsea on loan with an option for a permanent deal".
