Chelsea eye Juventus outcast Krasic

Juventus midfielder Milos Krasic has emerged as the top January transfer target for Chelsea after he was told he has no future in Turin, according to Metro.

The 27 year old Serbian joined Juventus for £12.5m in the summer of 2010, but has been frozen out by Juventus coach Antonio Conte. Krasic is now looking for a move away from the Bianconeri and has earmarked the Premier League as his destination. The midfielder’s agent, Dejan Joksimovic, has confirmed that the Blues are interested, but face competition from big spending Russian side Anzhi Makhackala as well as Borussia Dortmund.

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas knows he needs to sign players after his side’s lacklustre start to the season. Krasic is deployed as a winger and Chelsea are looking to sign the Serbian on loan until the end of the season. Juventus are keen on a permanent move for Krasic, but will settle for a temporary deal to move Krasic out of Turin. Villas-Boas is also keen on bringing in Krasic to replace the departing Nicolas Anelka to Shanghai Shenhua, as well as Salomon Kalou’s absence for a month at the African Cup of Nations.

Krasic has also been targeted by Manchester United after impressing when the Premier League champions played Krasic’s former side CSKA Moscow. Chelsea are expected to lead the chase for the midfielder, as United are currently uninterested.
