Juventus are preparing a bid for Chelsea midfielder Raul Meireles.

The Portugal international is unsettled after seeing manager Andre Villas-Boas sacked last month.

Tuttosport says Fabio Paratici, sporting director of the Bianconeri, was spotted at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday to watch Chelsea's 2-1 Champions League quarter-final victory against Benfica.

Paratici was making a check on Meireles, who struck the winner on the night.
