Brazilian centre-back Thiago Silva joined Chelsea as a free agent last summer on a one year deal with an option to extend for another year.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Silva and his agent are set to hold talks with the Chelsea board in the coming weeks about extending his Chelsea contract.
Silva has been a key player for Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, who is said to have ‘positive feelings’ over the centre-back. Tuchel is reportedly happy to extend his Chelsea contract because he sees Silva as a great leader.
Romano tweeted: “Thiago Silva and his agents will discuss with Chelsea about his 1 year contract extension in the coming weeks. No rush.
“Chelsea board so happy with Thiago, Tuchel thinks he’s a great leader – positive feelings. The final decision will be made together with the player.”
