Chelsea are still keen to sign Juventus star Alex Sandro and according to our sources the Premier League giants will do everything that it’s in their power to sign the player in the January transfer window.

Calciomercato.com can confirm that Chelsea made several offers for the Brazilian left-back last summer with Juventus that refused proposals worth over € 70 million. Alex Sandro was offered a € 7 million-a-year deal and reached a principle of agreement with the Premier League giants but Juventus refused to sell their talented defender.

Despite Juventus’ ongoing contract talks, however, Chelsea will still make an attempt to sign Alex Sandro in January.
