Chelsea defender Alex is once again being linked with a move to Italian giants Juventus.

The Serie 'A' side were thought to be keen on a move for the player in August, with German side Bayern Munich also thought to be keen on a move for the player at the time.

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas was able to keep hold of the Brazilian at the time, but Setanta Sports claims the bianconeri are once again keen to sign the player in the January transfer window.

The report goes on to state manager Giuseppe Marotta has made the Blues' centre back his number one target for the transfer window as he looks to sure-up his defence.


 

Alex has only made two Barclays Premier League starts for Chelsea this season, and faces competition from David Luiz and Branislav Ivanovic in the battle to start alongside England skipper John Terry at Stamford Bridge.

With the player's contract set to expire in 2013, Villas-Boas will have to decide if it's worthwhile cashing-in on the player, spending the accumulated transfer funds elsewhere to strengthen his Chelsea squad.
