Italian champions Juventus have rekindled their interest in out-of-favour Chelsea midfielder, Oscar, and are interested in engineering a deal in January, according to Calciomercato (via Goal.com).
The Brazilian has found playing time hard to come by since the arrival of former Italy manager Antonio Conte this summer, and the Old Lady hope that they can tempt him away from Stamford Bridge with the lure of regular first team football.
The 25-year-old, who made the move to West London from Internacional in 2012, has made just seven appearances for Conte’s side so far this season – and hasn’t started a game in the Premier League since the 2-1 loss to Liverpool.
It had appeared that the Premier League winner was going to return to a more focal role at the Bridge under his new boss, having been prominent in pre-season and the early stages of the league campaign, however his playing time has been rapidly declining in recent weeks.
This sparsity of playing time has once again put Juve on alert as they look to bring in the £30m rated attacking midfielder.
