Chelsea set to battle for £60m-rated midfield star

Timothy Aiyeku



English Premier League side Chelsea are set to battle other top clubs for the signature of Italian Serie A midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur who is a subject of interest from a number of clubs.

Rodrigo Bentancur is already being wanted by Spanish giants Real Madrid and English Premier League champions Man City with all clubs seeking to have his signature in January when the winter transfer window reopens.

Reports according to Don Balon reveal that the Italy based player has a price tag of about £60 million which his European suitors are ready to pay to have a deal sealed.

With two three top guns already in for the 21-year-old, it is believed that Juventus will leave the decision in the hands of the player as long as his asking price can be met.

Rodrigo Bentancur has been a major part of the Juventus team so far in this season with 15 games already under his belt across all competitions and that is enough to have handed him the level of attention he has at the moment.

The Uruguay international has got lots of qualities including having the ability to break-up play, play as a box-to-box man and also initiating an attack which adds to having the ability to intimidate with his physicality.
