The Dane would be free to dicuss terms over a free transfer away from Stamford Bridge in January if Chelsea do not wrap up negotiations.

This news follows rumours that Chelsea are set to hand four players contract offers in the coming months.

The Blues will be keen to tie Christensen down after an impressive Euro 2020 campaign and due to the fact that his fellow defenders; Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta and Thiago Silva are also into the final year of their contract.

What did Andreas Christensen say about his future??

Back in April, he said: "I’ve shown that I’m here for the long run. I’ve been here almost nine, 10 years now.

"I’ve never doubted my decision [to come to Chelsea] and I’ve always been here for the long run. I accept that the club sometimes changes managers, and that can make it hard to always be in the team.

"After the loan spell [at Borussia Monchengladbach] I came back and played a good amount and since then it’s been a bit in and out, but it’s nice at the moment to play back-to-back games and my confidence is growing with each game.

"There have not been any talks [on a contract extension] yet, but like I said, I’m in this for the long run and I always have been. I feel like this is my second home. Denmark will always be my home, but Chelsea will always be my place."
