Italian champions Juventus are thought to be keen on landing Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic this winter as an alternative to Borussia Dortmund ace Ilkay Gundogan, report the Daily Express.
The Old Lady are said to closely monitoring the Serb’s situation at Stamford Bridge after a miserable second full season of his second spell with the Blues.
Despite establishing himself as an integral part of Jose Mourinho’s title winning side last term, the former Benfica star has been one of the major disappointments of their miserable defence.
The 27-year old is reportedly a £22m target for the Turin giants should they fail to land Germany international and Liverpool target Gundogan.
The 25-year old midfielder is yet to come to a full decision on his immediate future with the Bundesliga giants, though a switch to the Premier League has often been touted.
Former Dortmund chief Jurgen Klopp has previously been linked with making a swoop for the player to reunite the pair at Liverpool.
