Juventus left-back Alex Sandro is reportedly the subject of interest from Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, according to The Daily Telegraph.
The Italian coach is desperate to try and tie up a deal to bring the 26-year-old to the west London in the January transfer window.
The report claims that the Blues have been handed a “huge boost” in their long-standing pursuit of the Brazil international with the fact that he now wants to quit bianconeri.
The report adds that whether a move is likely to materialise in the new year or in the summer is thought to be dependent on whether the Italian champions would be able to find an adequate replacement in January.
It is believed that Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City were also keen on signing Sandro during the summer transfer window.
