Chelsea plan to launch a January bid for Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin.

The Sun says former boss Carlo Ancelotti had a £15million bid rejected for Godin before signing David Luiz last January.

Now Andre Villas-Boas wants to try again for the 25-year-old Uruguayan World Cup star.

Villas-Boas believes he needs four top-class centre-backs to spearhead Chelsea's bid for Premier League and Champions League glory.
