Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will seek to reopen negotiations with Sevilla for wing-back Daniel Alves.

The Telegraph says Abramovich will ask Sevilla to name their price for the Brazil international.

"The Alves deal could be back on in January, but again it all depends on the price. Roman is not prepared to pay silly money," a source close to Abramovich said.

Sevilla may consider dropping their original asking price to £18m as the club rebuild following the loss of coach Juande Ramos to Spurs last month.
