Italian giants Juventus have reportedly opened talks with Chelsea over a move for Brazilian playmaker Oscar, according to the Daily Express.
Oscar played a key role in helping the Blues secure their first Premier League title in five years last season, scoring seven goals in 41 appearances, but fell down the pecking order as the campaign wore on, and is since being linked with an exit from the club during the transfer window.
And it seems that his most likely destination will be Juve, after coach Massimiliano Allegri confirmed his interest in taking the 23-year-old off Chelsea’s hands.
Reports close to the Blues have hinted that the Serie A champions have sent representatives to London in order to discuss terms.
Chelsea are keen on signing Juve midfielder Paul Pogba, but talks over a deal to take him to Stamford Bridge aren’t believed to be on the agenda.
