The Blues have also been linked with a bid for Juventus' Lichtsteiner, but his agent today played down talk of the Swiss right-back moving to Stamford Bridge.
"I don't know where these rumours come from," his agent and father Marko Lichtsteiner told calciomercato.it.
"Stephan is happy at Juventus: they are first in the league and we hope they get through the (group) round in the Champions League.
"He wants to stay, he has no intention of leaving Turin and there is no reason to do it.
"He has no problems with (the coach). They are two people who have a strong characters and always want to win.
"If the club has other ideas for Stephan, I don't know."
