Chelsea are ready to launch a £10 million bid for Lokomotiv Moscow defender Branislav Ivanovic.

The Sun says Chelsea manager Avram Grant flew to Russia after Saturday's 6-0 mauling of Manchester City to watch Ivanovic in action for Lokomotiv.

Ivanovic insisted: "For now I'm only thinking about Lokomotiv.

"England or Italy? That's a hard one. I don't want to mess my head up by worrying about that."
