Chelsea are eyeing a move for Roma midfielder Florenzi who is also being tracked by Scudetto Champions Juventus. According to Calcio Mercato, the Blues are ready to do everything possible to ensure they beat the Turin outfit to the midfielder’s signature in the summer.
Juventus are believed to be in urgent need for a player who could feature as a left-back and equally as a defensive midfielder just like the Italy t international. The Serie A Champions are ready to spend big on the player’s service so as to get him ahead of their rival Chelsea.
Though Florenzi is reportedly in talks with Roma over a contract extension which would tie him to the Italian capital till the end of 2022 season, both teams are ready to trigger the release clause present in his current contract with AS Roma.
Should Florenzi signed a contract before the end of this season, he would see his price tag increase his hugely and that may scare off any club who are keen on signing him in the summer
Florenzi has been ever-present for the Italian giants so far this season and he has a huge role to play if Roma must overcome Shakhtar’s challenge in their bid to qualify for Champions League quarterfinal round.
Both teams are in action tonight as they tackle each other in the first leg of the round of 16 of the competition and Florenzi is set to lead Roma’s defense.
