Chelsea could make a splash in January by returning to Juventus to sign Alex Sandro, reports the Mirror , though Manchester United are also in the running.
The Blues were knocked back by the Old Lady last summer but failure to commit to a new deal and a dip in form has convinced the Italians to sell.
Antonio Conte could get his man for £50 million, which would put the former Porto star just behind Benjamin Mendy (£52m) as the most expensive full-back of all time.
Alex could transform Chelsea's attacking output down the left side, though Marcos Alonso has chipped in with an impressive five Premier League goals this term. The Spaniard could become an option at centre-back though, having played there for Fiorentina.
Speaking of La Viola, Chelsea could be set to miss out on one of Stefano Pioli's top players Federico Chiesa.
Talksport claims Napoli will make an opening offer of £35m for the 20-year-old winger, who is also being targeted by Tottenham.
