Chelsea launching shock move for Blackburn wing-back Martin Olsson

Chelsea are lining up a shock move for Blackburn Rovers fullback Martin Olsson.

The Mirror says Martin Olsson is being lined up as the £7million long-term successor to ­Ashley Cole at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have jumped to the head of the queue for the Blackburn defender, who will quit Ewood Park this summer.

Stoke City, Newcastle and Galatasaray are all primed to raid the relegated club for the 23-year-old ace.

But Roman Abramovich is primed to flex his financial muscle and snap up Olsson, who will face England as part of Sweden’s Euro 2012 squad next month.
