The Brazilian international is the subject of a ?20million (£13million) bid from the English giants - but Sevilla are thought to be wanting ?30million (£20million) for the highly-rated full-back.
Liverpool and Real Madrid have seemingly been put off by Sevilla's demands - but Chelsea are being persistent and still hold out hope of luring the 24-year-old to Stamford Bridge.
However, Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon is known to have told Sevilla that The Blues have other targets and will soon move on if they do not receive a positive response.
Alves's agent Jose Rodriguez Baster has now insisted that they want Sevilla to accept Chelsea's bid.
"Daniel wants to see an agreement between the two clubs," Baster told the Spanish press.
"We need to see if the president [Jose Maria] Del Nido considers it, but we cannot really say anything as we are not certain.
"We just hope that Del Nido understands that this would be good for all parts, we can see this already."
