Chelsea are reportedly ready to compete with Juventus as both clubs show an interest in signing Real Madrid defender Danilo.

Real Madrid defender Danilo has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for Chelsea.

It has previously been suggested that Juventus are eyeing the right-back as a potential replacement for Dani Alves, who has been released from his contract ahead of a likely switch to Manchester City.

However, according to Marca, they face competition for his signature with Chelsea seemingly prepared to spend big on the 25-year-old.

Head coach Antonio Conte is keen to strengthen his squad at wing-back and after missing out on Alves, it appears that Danilo has been identified as the next best option.

Danilo was limited to just 23 starts in all competitions last season, while he has featured 55 times since leaving Porto for the Bernabeu in 2015.

It has been suggested that the Blues or Juve would need to offer in the region of £26m in order to open discussions with the Brazil international.
