As the transfer window draws closer, rumours linking players to various clubs have started and latest of such is that linking Chelsea’s midfielder Oscar to Italian champions Juventus.
This report is according to Tuttosport via Daily Star which claims that the Italian giants have sent sporting director Fabio Paratici to London for a talk with Chelsea over a deal for the sensational Brazilian.
Juventus were reportedly keen on signing the 24-year old midfielder during the summer but Chelsea insisted the Brazilian was not for sale. Oscar has been a key player for the Blues’ team since his arrival in 2012 from Brazilian side Internacional.
The attacking midfielder has suffered a dramatic dip in form as the Blues have struggled this season. Chelsea relationship with the Old Lady seems to have strengthened since Juan Cuadrado moved to Juventus on a season-long loan during the summer.
However Juve’s director visit to Stamford Bridge may actually serve as an opportunity for the Blues to discuss a potential move for their summer prime target Paul Pogba, who could as well be a replacement for Oscar, should he exit Chelsea.
Oscar has scored a total of 32 goals for the London club in his 160 appearances while also helping the team to win major trophies such as the Premier League, Capital One Cup and the Europa League cup.
