According to reports from Calcio Mercato, Premier League outfit Chelsea are open to selling attacking midfielder Oscar for a fee of around £30 million.

The Antonio Conte revolution at Chelsea has begun following the £33 million arrival of Michy Batshuayi from Marseille and now a host of other high profile names are expected to follow the Belgian international to Stamford Bridge this summer.

On the other side of the spectrum though, Conte is also believed to be looking to offload a number of the current first team squad and according to reports from Calcio Mercato, one of the players the Italian manager is ready to dispense with is attacking midfielder Oscar.

Oscar has been a crucial member of the Chelsea side since his arrival to Chelsea from Internacional back in 2012 but the Brazilian international endured a terrible campaign last term and he was largely reduced to a fringe role due to his poor performances.

As a result, it is widely believed that the Premier League giants will be open to selling Oscar this summer and Italian giants Juventus have reportedly (Daily Mail) expressed their interest in signing the 24-year-old.

Now in a boost to Juventus’ hopes of landing Oscar, Chelsea are willing to listen to offers and a move away from London for the attacker seems a real possibility. That being said, the Blues are not ready to let Oscar leave on the cheap and have set an asking price of around £30 million.
