The Blues have missed out on long-term target Glen Johnson, with Liverpool confirming an �18.5m deal yesterday.

But Inter Milan right-back Maicon has impressed in the Confederations Cup in South Africa and kept Barcelona ace Dani Alves out of Brazil's starting line-up.

Inter will accept �25m for the 27-year-old defender and are even willing to part with idol Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 27, for another �50m.
