As reported by Goal, Juventus full-back Alex Sandro is close to signing for Chelsea for a figure close to £60 million.
The Brazilian would leave Juventus in one of the moves of the summer, a player who would fit perfectly at the wing-back in Chelsea’s system.
Juventus turned down a £50 million offer for the former Porto man, but Conte’s side are hoping to convince the Italian champions with a sumptuous bid.
The move would make Alex Sandro the most expensive full-back ever, beating Dani Alves (35.5 million euros) and Luke Shaw (35 million euros).
After a quiet first year for Juve, Alex Sandro had a fantastic 2016/17 campaign, but his contract keeps him in Turin until 2020.
