"The Blues want to sign him" - ESPN journalist says Chelsea will make fresh bid to sign £60million star


Chelsea are determined to make defender Alex Sandro one of their summer signing, ESPN journalist David Amoyal has claimed.

The Blues have already made an official bid to sign the player but it was rejected by Juventus.

But manager Antonio Conte will not give up as he considers the 26-year-old as one of the most important players ahead of next season.

"The Blues haven't given up on signing the Brazilian left-back even after their first bid was rejected," Amoyal wrote on his ESPN page.

"A fact confirmed by Juventus' executive director Beppe Marotta recently -- but since then Paris Saint-Germain have also joined the race.

"As we have seen with Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba, the current Serie A champions are willing to sell a star if the player pushes for the move and they receive an adequate offer.

"Chelsea are expected to make a new bid while Juventus could bring back Leonardo Spinazzola from his loan at Atalanta to replace him."
