Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has reportedly contacted Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot over a potential transfer.
The French international could part ways with the club as he’s heading into the final year of his contract. Rabiot got plenty of playing time under Massimiliano Allegri last season, but that doesn’t seem enough to convince him into staying.
Multiple reports claim that he has already communicated to Juve his wish of leaving them this summer. Although the French international received criticism due to his inconsistent performance, he is not short of suitors.
As reported by Tuttosport(via Juventusnews24), several Premier League teams are keen on Rabiot, notably Chelsea. The Blues are very serious in their approach for the Frenchman as there’s already personal contact with the player.
Chelsea’s coach, Thomas Tuchel apparently has had some talks with Rabiot over a potential transfer move.
Tuchel already knows the midfielder from their time at Paris Saint-Germain and is keen on working together again.
Juventus would be open to selling the player for around €20m, an amount that should not be an issue for the Blues.
