Alex Sandro, Juventus

Juventus have revealed that a significant transfer bid has been received for left-back Alex Sandro, who is a reported target of Premier League champions Chelsea.

Blues boss Antonio Conte is thought to be in the hunt for a left-back, with the Bianconeri's Sandro touted as his transfer priority.

The Serie A champions have confirmed that a sizeable bid has been tabled for the 26-year-old's services. The club are not looking to sell the Brazilian star, but also would not keep a player against his will.

Chief executive and general manager, Giuseppe Marotta, told Corriere dello Sport: "A substantial offer has arrived.

"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.

"We don't keep anyone against their will, but at the moment there are no such situations and I hope nobody will leave."
