Juventus left-back Alex Sandro is one of Antonio Conte’s key transfer targets but the Blues have so far been frustrated by Juventus in the pursuit of the 26-year-old Brazilian.
According to a report on Daily Express, Chelsea are still hopeful of signing Sandro and are willing to offer Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic in a swap deal.
28-year-old Matic was a key player for Chelsea last season as the Blues won the Premier League title but his future looks uncertain with Chelsea’s acquisition of 22-year-old Tiemoue Bakayoko.
Juventus reportedly want to frustrate Chelsea’s pursuit of Sandro by offering the Brazilian a new contract to remain at Turin.
Juventus are reportedly interested in Matic and Chelsea are hoping to use Juventus interest in Matic to reach an agreement for the transfer of Sandro.
