Chelsea made last attempt to sign Zenit midfielder Witsel

by -

Chelsea made a last attempt to persuade Axel Witsel, according to The Sun. 

It is understood the Belgian midfielder, who’s out of contract at Zenit St-Petersburg, prepares to join Juventus in the January transfer market window, anyway Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is reportedly still considering to land the 27-year-old to Stamford Bridge.

Witsel has reportedly rejected the move as he wants to remain loyal to the Serie A champions, who failed to sign him on Deadline Day last summer.
