Chelsea transfer: Juventus offer Bernardeschi, Rabiot as part of double Chelsea swoop for Alonso and Jorginho
Juventus to offer Bernardeschi, Rabiot as part of double Chelsea swoop
Juventus are reportedly willing to offer Federico Bernardeschi and Adrien Rabiot to Chelsea as part of a double swoop for Jorginho and Marcos Alonso.
Both players have been linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge in recent weeks, with Alonso’s future in particular said to be under threat as Chelsea supposedly eye up Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell.
It remains to be seen how the ongoing coronavirus pandemic will affect transfer business during the summer window, but Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri is allegedly keen to reunite with Jorginho in Turin.
According to Calciomercato, Sarri is open to parting ways with Bernardeschi and Rabiot in order to facilitate a deal for the two Chelsea men.
The report claims that Frank Lampard’s side would be looking for a straight cash sum of €80m (£71.8m) for Jorginho and Alonso, and Juventus are confident that adding two players into the mix will convince the Blues to lower their asking price.
Bernardeschi and Rabiot have made a combined total of 50 appearances for Juventus across all competitions this term.
Chelsea ‘enter Benrahma talks’
RMC journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi says Chelsea have formally expressed an interest in signing Brentford star said Benrahma.
The report claims the Blues have begun talks with the Algerian’s representatives, amid interest from Arsenal and Leicester.
