Juventus have reportedly ruled out the possibility of Milos Krasic joining Chelsea during the January transfer window.
Krasic has hardly featured for the Serie A this season, and his future in Turin has been the subject of frequent speculation in recent weeks.
The 27-year-old's appearance against Cagliari on Sunday was his first for Juve since October, and Chelsea have reportedly been monitoring his situation with interest.
However, according to talkSPORT, Juve will not entertain any approaches for Krasic from England, and he is instead more likely to join Lazio on loan for the rest of the season.
With Nicolas Anelka having left the club for pastures new and Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou both on international duty, the acquisition of forward reinforcements appears to be a priority for Andre Villas-Boas.
But, it would seem, he Krasic will not ease his worries, although it is claimed Chelsea are close to securing a deal for Lille sensation Eden Hazard.
