Chelsea poised to complete £55million move for Antonio Conte's target after positive talks


Chelsea are expected to reach an agreement to sign Juventus left back Alex Sandro, reports in Italy have claimed.

The policy of the Serie A champions is not to block a player who wants to leave the club, which is the reason why the Brazilian and Dani Alves will both leave the club this summer.

Alex Sandro is one of the many targets of manager Antonio Conte and is expected to move to Stamford Bridge for £55million.

The Bianconeri confirmed that an important offers has been made for the 26-year-old who could become Chelsea's second summer signing before the end of the month, with Tiemoue Bakayoko expected to be the first.

"A substantial offer has arrived for Alex Sandro," Juventus director general Beppe Marotta said.

"We have no intention of selling anyone, but if a player decides to leave, as has happened in previous years, then at the end of the day he has to go, because we don't want to keep anyone against their will.

"But at the moment, there are no such situations and I hope nobody will leave."
