Chelsea reportedly express an interest in securing the signature of Juventus defender Alex Sandro before the end of the January transfer window.

Chelsea have reportedly enquired about the availability of Juventus defender Alex Sandro.

With Ben Chilwell having been ruled out for the remainder of the season with a knee injury, head coach Thomas Tuchel has been keen to find a short-term replacement at left wing-back.

The Blues have failed to reach an agreement with Lyon over the recall of Emerson Palmieri, while other short-term possibilities have not been pursued.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, however, the Premier League giants have asked whether signing Sandro before the end of January is a realistic option.

The 31-year-old is a key member of Massimiliano Allegri's first-team squad in Turin, the Brazil international having made 27 appearances in all competitions this season.

As it stands, Juventus are unlikely to consider any proposal without finding a replacement, although it cannot be ruled out with Sandro having less than 18 months remaining on his contract.
