Reports: Chelsea attacking duo Oscar and Cuadrado linked with exit

Oscar for Chelsea

Juventus are looking to make a statement by signing Oscar and Juan Cuadrado from Chelsea.

Representatives from Juventus have arrived in London for transfer talks with Chelsea, according to reports.

The Italian giants are believed to be looking for January reinforcements after making a poor start to their Serie A defence, and the Daily Mail claims that one player on their radar is Brazilian maestro Oscar.

Chelsea landed the 24-year-old from Internacional for £19.35 million in 2012, but it seems he is yet to fully convince Jose Mourinho of his top-class pedigree.

Oscar has featured in just half of Chelsea’s 12 Premier League games this season, scoring once, and was linked with a switch to Juventus over the summer.

The report also claims that Massimo Allegri is desperate to sign loan star Juan Cuadrado on a permanent transfer, with the Metro adding that Sporting Director Fabio Paratici is already in London to negotiate deals for the midfield duo.

Juventus are also believed to be looking for an imposing attacker following Fernando Llorente’s departure to Sevilla, with the Mirror claiming that Southampton striker Graziano Pelle is top of their shopping list.
