Chelsea are interested in signing Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic, according to Corriere dello Sport.
The Bosnia and Herzegovina international has been linked with a summer switch away from Turin.
As he is now 30-years-old, Juventus will likely be willing to let him leave for the right price.
Frank Lampard appears to be building an exciting Blues side ahead of next season.
With a few wise tweaks to their side this summer, some speculate that the Stamford Bridge club can potentially challenge for the league title next season.
Hakim Ziyech will join the Chelsea first-team from Ajax Amsterdam this summer.
The prospect of being a part of Lampard’s exciting project could be something that is appealing to Pjanic.
The Blues side will be very youthful next season and it would be a good idea for them to add some experience in order to create more balance.
Pjanic has been on the books of Juventus since 2016 when he joined them from Roma. Since then, he has gone on to make 168 appearances in all competitions, scoring 22 goals.
Chelsea will also likely need midfield reinforcements this summer. Their dynamo N’Golo Kante as well as Jorginho have been linked with potential moves away from Stamford Bridge this summer.
Jorginho who is known to be a favourite of Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri has been linked with a move to the Old Lady of Italian football.
It would not be surprising if a swap deal involving Jorginho and Pjanic could be on the cards.
