Pique has fallen down the pecking order at the Nou Camp this season, and had been tipped to make an exit from the club in the new year with former club Manchester United rumoured to be keen on his signature.
However, reports are suggesting that the Blues have moved ahead of United in the race for his services and have already opened talks over a £20m bid.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho is said to be a big fan of the Spanish international, and despite having a number of fine centre-backs to choose from he is willing to splash the outlay on bringing him to London.
