Jose Mourinho is keen for Chelsea to move for Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio.

Mourinho feels Chelsea's squad is a quality, box-to-box midfielder short and has identified Marchisio as a potential solution, says TuttoJuve.com.

The incoming Chelsea manager is also interested in AS Roma midfielder Daniele de Rossi, whose signing he regularly discussed during the three years he was in charge of Real Madrid.

Juve won't consider selling Marchisio for less than €25 million.

Mourinho is turning to the Italy duo after seeing former Porto midfielder Joao Moutinho sign for AS Monaco.
