Chelsea star Ramires linked with Italian Champions

The Serie A Champions are reportedly keen to bring the Blues midfielder to Turin.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has identified Ramires as perfect addition to the Italian club, after Andrea Pirlo and Arturo Vidal left for New York City and Bayern Munich respectively. The Bianconeri hope to sign him before the transfer window shuts down on September 1st. Ramires has currently two years remaining on his contract with Stamford Bridge side, but it remains uncertain if Jose Mourinho is willing to let go the Brazilian talent.

The 28-year-old  Brazilian midfielder has been used as a 3rd choice midfielder by Mourinho, after the likes of Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas. However, with Vidal, Pirlo gone and Khedira injured, Ramires could secure the first-choice midfielder spot at Juventus Stadium.

The Italian media have also confirmed that the Old Lady have also made approach to FC Schalke to sign the 21-year-old World Cup winner Julian Draxler.
