Chelsea FC have made a bid to try and sign Mattia Caldara from Juventus this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Italian outlet Corriere della Sera, as quoted by Football Italia, is reporting that the Blues have made an offer to try and bring Caldara to Stamford Bridge this summer.

The west London side are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to try and build a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season.

The same report, though, says that Juventus want a fee closer to €50m for the 24-year-old defender.

Chelsea FC have so far only signed two new players this summer after having been linked with a host of players ahead of next season.

The west London side will be looking to challenge for the Premier League title next season after they finished in fifth place in the table and won the FA Cup under Antonio Conte last term.

Chelsea FC have so far only signed Jorginho and Rob Green as the Blues look to try and get their squad in order ahead of the close of the transfer window on 9 August.
