Chelsea are prepared to sell Cesc Fabregas to Juventus, according to Tuttosport.
The Serie A champions are looking to replace Paul Pogba following his world-record transfer to Manchester United.
Nemanja Matic has been heavily linked with a move to Turin all summer but Chlesea boss Antonio Conte has revealed the Serb fits firmly into his plans at Stamford Bridge.
As a result, Tuttosport claim Chelsea have offered Juve Fabregas instead in a deal which could be worth £45m.
Italian newspaper Tuttosport led with the headline, ‘Juve, want Fabregas?’ on Friday morning.
Paris Saint-Germain’s Blaise Matuidi was another target but the French champions have no interest in selling.
