Chelsea suffer blow in pursuit of major summer target

Chelsea has been dealt a major blow in their pursuit of a transfer target as Juventus have come out to say that they are not interested in selling any of their players.

The Blues have been keen on signing Juventus left-back, Alex Sandro for a long time now, and Conte was hoping to make him his first signing this summer.

Sandro is one of the most consistent left backs in Europe and his outstanding performances helped the Bianconerri clinch the league and cup double last season.

The Brazilian is happy in Turin but is also excited about the prospect of playing in the Premier League at some point in his career.

The Blues are hoping to sign the Brazilian for a fee in the region of £45 million, as they consider him a good competitor for their current left wing back, Marcos Alonso.

Chelsea is hoping that Sandro, who is currently on holiday, would ask for the transfer when he comes back for preseason next month.

Conte is hoping to make some major signings ahead of the new campaign that would see them play more games and move for Romelu Lukaku and Virgil Van Dijk are also in the pipeline. © 2017 Frontier Theme
