Chelsea have expressed interest in bringing Brazilian midfielder Ramires to Stamford Bridge, according to the player's agent.

Benfica star Ramires, who has four years left on his contract with the Portuguese club, played four games for Brazil at the World Cup but was absent from their quarter-final defeat to Holland due to suspension.

The player's agent, Luis Carlini, says both the Blues and Bayern Munich have made enquiries about the 23-year-old midfielder.

"Many clubs from the big European leagues have been in contact about Ramires," Carlini told the News of the World.

"Chelsea and Bayern have spoken to Benfica, but I can't say more."

Ramires, who joined Benfica last summer for £6.5million, admits he could be tempted by an offer from a high-profile club, but insists the decision lies with the Lisbon outfit.

"I came to Europe to win championships," he said.

"It is normal that I would look at any offers from clubs in bigger leagues but I am currently under contract and Benfica will have the final say."
