Juventus confirm interest in £25m-rated Chelsea star

Chelsea may face a summer battle to keep hold of Oscar after Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri revealed his admiration for the player, according to reports from the Mirror.

The 23-year-old is currently valued at about £25million and is being targeting as a potential midfield candidate for the Serie A winning side.

They only missed out on the treble when they were defeated by Barcelona in the Champions League final after winning the league as well as the Coppa Italia.

Blues manager Jose Mourinho earlier admitted that he is not looking to offload Oscar in the upcoming window, but the Brazil international may actually consider a move due to his role.

He is currently one of the Premier League’s most substituted players, a factor that could persuade him to accept a move elsewhere.

Despite that, he is often selected in the starting 11, featuring 41 times in all competitions this season and has scored a total of seven goals while providing a further nine assists.
