However, Alves' agent Geronimo Suarez insists he will eventually move to Stamford Bridge.
"We are expecting a solution between the clubs and are confident they are going to reach a deal," Suarez told Sky Sports News. "Sevilla have good reasons to maintain a hard position for the player because he is a star for them and they want him to stay there.
"Of course Chelsea want him, so both clubs at this moment need more time.
Suarez reiterated that Alves was eager to secure a switch to Stamford Bridge.
"He is determined to go there. He wants to close the deal as soon as possible," he said
