Juventus to make serious play for Chelsea midfielder Matic

Italian giants Juventus have Nemanja Matic at the top of their list of summer transfers.

Multiple outlets are reporting that the Chelsea midfielder continues to remain on Juve's wish-list as they brace themselves for the summer exit of Paul Pogba.

France star Pogba is believed to be close to joining former club Manchester United in a deal worth more than £100million and once his departure is confirmed, the Bianconeri are likely to make a move for Matic.

The Serbian is still wanted by new Blues boss Antonio Conte, despite the arrival of N'Golo Kante from Premier League champions Leicester City, but the Daily Mailsuggests that he is first choice for Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri.

The Turin giants are currently in Melbourne to play their part in the International Champions Cup but club officials who remained in Italy are monitoring the situation and are expected to touch base with Chelsea as the Pogba shift to Old Trafford becomes more apparent.
