The Blues, who top the Premier League table, are set to strengthen their squad next month, with Jose Mourinho keen to ensure that his side’s excellent start is rewarded with his first title since returning to Stanford Bridge last year.
Although he has strength and depth in most positions, ‘The Special One’ is keen on Juve’s powerful and versatile Asamoah.
The 26-year old is able to play at full-back, wing-back or in an advanced role on the flank on either side, which appeals to Mourinho.
The Old Lady value their man highly, but reports suggest that Chelsea are keen to push through a deal with a £24m offer.
The west London club have money to spend, with sales over the summer having left them in profit, despite the additions of Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas in big money swoops.
