Chelsea are preparing to make an offer for Daniele Rugani worth over £45m after Juventus rejected their initial bid, according to a report.

Chelsea have reportedly drafted an improved offer for Juventus defender Daniele Rugani worth upwards of £45m.

The 23-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge since the end of the season, with new boss Maurizio Sarri said to be an admirer of the Italy international.

Chelsea are believed to have made an initial approach for Rugani earlier in July but their £36m offer was reportedly turned down by the Bianconeri.

According to Goal.com, the Blues have agreed to Juve's demand for £10m on top of their initial offer and will send the new bid through in the coming days.

Rugani still has three years remaining on his contract with the Serie A champions.
