Chelsea could look to sign Kwadwo Asamoah on a free transfer from Juventus at the end of the season, according to reports.
Although the Old Lady are reported to be trying to extend the stay of the Ghanian at the Allianz Arena, he has yet to sign a new contract with the club, with his current deal set to expire at the end of the season.
During his time with Juventus, the 29-year-old has been confined to being a squad rotation player and he is reported to now be keen on a fresh challenge, with a view to playing on a more regular basis.
This season has been Asamoah’s best with Juventus as he has gone on to play 14 times in the Serie A, which has included 13 starts, as well as featuring twice in the Champions League.
It is understood that if Asamoah does arrive at Stamford Bridge, he will be required to provide competition to Marcos Alonso. The Blues will, however, face competition for the player as the likes of Galatasaray, Fenerbahce as well as Italian clubs Napoli, AS Roma and Inter Milan are also rumoured to be interested.
Asamoah nearly joined Galatasaray last summer but the move was called off after Juve failed to find a replacement. The midfielder will take a winning mentality to whichever club he joins as he has won five Serie A titles, three Coppa Italias and three Super Cup golds during his time in Turin.
He has also previously played under Antonio Conte at Juventus between 2012 and 2014.
Meanwhile, Asamoah’s Juventus teammate Alex Sandro, who was reportedly close to moving to Chelsea last summer, has apparently informed the club’s hierarchy that he wishes to commit his long-term future to the Italian giants. The 27-year-old is regarded as one of the best left-backs in world football and had been linked with moves to a number of clubs.
