Chelsea FC want to sign Kwadwo Asamoah on a free transfer from Juventus this summer, say reports
Chelsea FC want to sign Juventus left-back Kwadwo Asamoah on a free transfer this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Sun is reporting that the Blues are hoping to sign the 29-year-old when his contract with the Italian club expires at the end of the season.
Antonio Conte knows Asamoah well, after having brought the left-back to Turin when he was in charge of Juventus back in 2012.
Chelsea FC were heavily linked with a move to sign other Juve left-back Alex Sandro last summer, but the story claims that the Brazilian has now told the Serie A side that he wants to stay.
According to the same story, Chelsea FC could be set to face competition from both Napoli and Inter Milan for the signature of Asamoah this summer.
Ghana international Asamoah has made one assist in 14 Serie A appearances for Juventus so far this season.
Meanwhile, Chelsea FC are currently preparing for their FA Cup quarter-final clash against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Sunday as they look to bounce back from the disappointment of their Champions League exit.
Conte’s side were beaten 3-0 by FC Barcelona at Camp Nou in the second leg of their last 16 clash in Wednesday night.
