While a lot of important names are being discussed at Chelsea when it comes to Todd Boehly’s big summer sale, there are also potentially forgotten about players who could leave.

One of those is Ethan Ampadu, who has spent the last two seasons on loan in Italy, first at Venezia and then Spezia, and could continue his career there going forward.

This comes from Gazzetta dello Sport, who explain that Udinese have targeted the Wales international as a replacement for Becao, who is seen as a ‘safe exit’ from their ranks this summer.

The role of taking over from the Brazilian requires a player who is already ‘ready’, and ‘the spotlights are still focused’ on the young Chelsea defender.

Still only 22, Ampadu has gathered a lot of experience in Serie A over the past couple of campaigns, but his contract at Stamford Bridge expires next year, meaning a decision needed to be made.

Chelsea have taken it, and Gazzetta claim the Premier League side ‘intend to sell him’ in order to avoid a potential free exit next summer.

Working in his favour in the eyes of Juventus is his age, as he is still young, as well as a versatility (he can also play in midfield) that manager Andrea Sottil likes.

On the flip side, he does have a relatively hefty wage by Udinese’s standards over over €1m/year, but the belief is that if there is a ‘concrete desire to make the transfer’, this is an issue that could be solved.
