According to bookmakers BetStars, Chelsea are favourites to sign Italy international and Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio.
Reports in Italy suggest Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is interested in bringing Marchisio to Stamford Bridge and bookies have now made Chelsea favourites to sign the 31-year-old midfielder.
“He’s closing in on the Premier League title in his first season in English football and now Antonio Conte is already looking to strengthen this summer, with Claudio Marchisio high on his agenda,” said a BetStars spokesman via Daily Express.
“The Blues are currently the 3/1 frontrunners to sign the Juventus man and the chance of a reunion with Conte at the Premier League Champions elect could prove too good to ignore.
“It would be no surprise to see Marchisio in a Chelsea shirt next season.”
Marchisio previously worked under Conte for three years at Juventus, winning three Serie A titles together.
