Chelsea eyeing move for Juventus box-to-box midfielder

Chelsea have entered the race for the signing of Juventus star Adrien Rabiot, who is struggling for form under manager Massimiliano Allegri, according to a recent report from Calciomercato.

The Frenchman is currently in his third full campaign with the Old Lady after joining them in the summer transfer market of 2019 on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain.

However, he has been unable to get going at I Bianconeri, struggling to make the impression that had sides all across queuing up to land him not so long ago.

Adrien has managed six goals and five assists from his 95 matches for his team to date. While the player has started eight Serie A matches this season, the head coach has been critical of his player on more than one occasion.

With the situation not improving, the Italians are seriously thinking about the prospect of offloading the 26-year-old.

Thomas Tuchel’s side have thrown their hat in the rings for the under-performing midfielder in the January transfer window.

While the capital outfit have no shortage of options in the middle of the pitch, the report states that the Blues are eyeing Rabiot as a possible replacement for Saul, who has struggled in West London.

It is noted that the Spaniard could return to Atletico Madrid, even though such reports have been refuted by other news outlets in the recent past.
