Juventus are considering a move for Chelsea’s Danish defender Andreas Christensen.
The 25-year old is in the last year of his current deal at Stamford Bridge and, despite talks earlier in the season that he was on the brink of signing a new deal talks have subsequently stalled between both parties.
Having been brought back into the fold last season under Thomas Tuchel, helping the club win the Champions League, he has had an impressive start to this campaign as well, making 11 appearances and scoring his first senior level goal.
The Serie A side are looking for defensive reinforcements and they have a habit of signing top players in free contracts.
With Christensen able to talk to foreign clubs in January when the transfer window opens and even sign a pre-contract agreement, Chelsea have a decision to make. Open talks again with the Dane or look to sell him in January to avoid him leaving for nothing.
