Chelsea are pushing to open talks with Southampton for fullback Luke Shaw.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea are hoping to open talks with Southampton next month regarding a move for 18-year-old left back Shaw.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho appears to have been convinced that signing a more mature left back is unnecessary and that a combination of one more year of Ashley Cole, who will be 33 next week, and a young, fast-developing left back such as Shaw would be an acceptable alternative.
