Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio has emerged as a potential Chelsea target for incoming boss Jose Mourinho.
Reports on Saturday say Mourinho is interested in the Juve star and is set to make an offer in excess of £15million for the 27-year-old.
Marchisio is believed to be happy at the Italian giants and is not seeking a move but any interest from Mourinho could turn his head this summer and he might be tempted in trying his luck in the Premier League.
Mourinho, who is set to be officially named new Blues boss at some point over the next two weeks, will want to make several big signings upon his return to Stamford Bridge and one could be Marchisio, who has been a target for Manchester United in the past.
Sami Khedira has been linked with a move as well, joining Mourinho in departing the Bernabeu, although the Portuguese coach has yet to finalise his transfer plans.
