According to Football Express News, Juventus have been granted permission by Chelsea to make a bid for Oscar during the upcoming summer transfer window.
The Italian side are looking to replace their “Gioconda” – so was dubbed by his agent – Paul Pogba. The Frenchman has attracted interest from a number of top European clubs. And the Brazilian duo may add an excellent mix of experience and freshness to start a new cycle in the midfield. Pirlo, another key member of their squad, is also reaching retirement, therefore prompting Juventus to look further afield to find replacements as they look to win their fourth consecutive Serie A title.
Juve officials have sent scouts to a number of potential replacements, and it’s now understood that Chelsea‘s Brazilian midfielder Oscar is top of their wishlist and the interest seems to be genuine.
The Brazil international joined Chelsea in 2012 and has made a big impact but his chances of starting in Jose Mourinho’s regular XI have dropped after the January signing of Juan Cuadrado from AC Fiorentina.
