Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin has revealed he would be open to a move to Chelsea this summer.

The Uruguay centre-half claims Atletico turned down a bid from the Blues in the January transfer window.

However, the Premier League giants are thought to be back in for the highly-rated stopper, and he insists he would welcome a switch to Stamford Bridge if they come knocking again.

Godin said in The Mirror: "In January, Atletico received an offer but the transfer did not happen.

"They had already sold other players and did not want to weaken the team further then.

"For Chelsea to still be interested in having me is an honour and means I must be playing well.

"Who would not want to play there? To do so would be a step up."
