Chelsea Reportedly Eye Juventus Star Kwadwo Asamoah on Free Transfer
According to the Sun‘s Alvise Cagnazzo, the Blues are hoping to land him on a free transfer when his contract expires at the end of the season, while Sandro—whose form has dropped off since he came close to joining Chelsea last summer—has decided to remain in Turin.
Napoli, Inter Milan and Galatasaray are also thought to be interested in Asamoah, with the latter likely to provide the stiffest competition. The Ghanaian is said to prefer a move away from Serie A if he does not sign a new deal with Juventus—who want him to stay—and the Turkish outfit have already made contact with him.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte signed Asamoah for the Bianconeri in 2012, though the 29-year-old has often been held back from becoming a key figure in the side because of injury.
BeIN Sports’ Matteo Bonetti questioned manager Massimiliano Allegri’s decision to bring him on in Juve’s UEFA Champions League second leg against Tottenham Hotspur, though the BBC’s John Bennett was pleased to see him:

Needing two goals, Allegri puts in Asamoah for Matuidi. Okay.
