Chelsea are ready to make a swap offer for Southampton fullback Luke Shaw. The People says Southampton are ready to trade Shaw for Chelsea's Ryan Bertrand this summer.

Saints will not sell their brilliant England Under-21 left-back in January but privately concede that he will join a Champions League club before long, with Stamford Bridge the likely destination.

They have expressed an interest in out-of-favour Bertrand, who is wanted by Liverpool this month.

Saints would want at least £8million plus Bertrand for Shaw, 18, who was a boyhood Chelsea fan.
