Chelsea Eyes Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot
The Blues are reportedly keeping close tabs on Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
The 26-year-old is tipped to leave the Bianconeri in the summer.
He has 3 goals and 2 assist in his name in 36 games across all competitions this season.
Whilst Jorginho’s exit rumors intensify, Rabiot could be his ideal replacement.
According to Football Italia outlet, the France international admitted that he feels happy playing alongside N’Golo Kante.
“It’s ‘easy’ to play next to Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante,”Rabiot remarked.
“He works a lot and never stops. It’s easy to be next to him on the pitch,” Rabiot continued. “Personally, I feel good in the middle.”
TuttoMercatoWeb understands that the midfield maestro has hinted at moving to Stamford Bridge to earn regular playing time under Tuchel.
Furthermore, the Italian outlet reports that Everton and Chelsea have reportedly shown interest in the star.
Whereas clubs have been adversely affected by the Coronavirus pandemic, Juventus is not an exception.
Consequently, the Old Lady wants to sell both Ramsey and Rabiot to raise funds to strengthen their team for next season.
They are ready to evaluate any offers from interested parties.
A Brazilian source confirmed that the west London club has completed a £13 million move for the Gabriel Menino.

Other sources claim that Palmeiras accepted Chelsea’s bid but information but the information has not been officially confirmed.
Nevertheless, those claims have been strongly refuted by an English source.
According to transfer expert and Skysports senior reporter Fabrizio Romano, the Blues are keeping close tabs.
There’s nothing done or agreed for Gabriel Menino from Palmeiras to Chelsea. The Brazilian midfielder has been scouted but there’s nothing advanced as of today.
Also Atlético have not opened any talk to sign him. Many clubs interested, good talent but nothing serious yet. 🔵 #CFC
