The future of Simone Zaza is uncertain at Juventus, with the Italian international managing just over 600 minutes of league football this season.
On Tuesday, Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport say Zaza has fallen out with Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri, and he could leave this summer.
The Serie A champions want at least €30m for Zaza, after paying €18m for him at the start of the season.
Several clubs are interested in signing the 24-year-old, including Chelsea, who Gazzetta believe are monitoring his situation.
Gazzetta reckon Antonio Conte is a big fan of Zaza, and believes he can score 20 goals a season, if played regularly.
Chelsea are likely to face competition from Stoke City, West Ham, Southampton, Leicester, Borussia Dortmund, and Borussia Monchengladbach, but would be hoping the chance of playing under Conte works in their favour.
It is reported Zaza has made up his mind, and he is definitely leaving Juventus, who are also on the verge of losing Alvaro Morata to Real Madrid.
Chelsea and other interested clubs, however, would be hoping to get a discount on the asking price, as the player hasn’t played enough, and it’s difficult to understand why Juventus feel his value has gone up by €12m in the past 12 months.
