Chelsea are interested in signing Juventus right-back Dani Alves, according to Sky Sports.
Sky Sports believe that the Blues will face competition from Premier League rivals Manchester City, but Antonio Conte appears to be keen to raid his former employers to sign Alves.
As per Sky Sports, Conte has already made a move to sign Juventus other full-back, Alex Sandro, and thus there is a possibility that he could poach both of the Serie A giants’ Brazilian defenders in one transfer window.
Sky Sports note that this report comes soon after Chelsea’s interest in Arsenal winger-cum-wing-back Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was revealed. This suggests that Conte is in the market for reinforcements on both sides of his defence, which will come as no surprise to Chelsea fans.
Both Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses have no natural cover. Whether it be Sandro, Alves, both, or anyone else – that’s certainly an area where we need to strengthen.
