• Blues set to reignite interest in Juventus defender Alex Sandro

    Chelsea are reportedly set to rekindle their interest in signing Alex Sandro from Juventus after missing out on the Brazilian during the summer transfer window.

    The Blues were willing to pay a world-record fee to land their top defensive target, but the Italian champions were holding out for more than £60million, which still remains the same.

    Despite bringing in Davide Zappacosta on deadline day, TransferMarketWeb suggests that Chelsea boss Antonio Conte retains an interest in the 26-year-old and he could test his former side’s resolve with a fresh approach when the transfer window reopens in the new year.

    Despite interest from the Premier League champions, Juventus are keen to hold on to Brazil international by offering him a new lucrative contract to extend his stay in Turin.
