Chelsea make offer for Juventus midfielder

Chelsea have made an offer for Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio.

According to The Sun, the Blues have opened the bidding at around £17million and, despite their initial offer being turned down, believe a deal for the midfielder could be agreed.

The 31-year-old midfielder has been used predominantly from the bench this season, but has spent his entire career at Juventus.

Juve head coach Allegri has signed a new contract at the club until 2020 and has outlined his summer transfer targets — but may need to recoup some money from sales.

One of the options would be to allow reluctantly allow Marchisio to leave — but not for less than £25m.
