Chelsea are interested in signing Juventus winger Milos Krasic, according to the player's agent.

The Serbian came close to completing a move to Tottenham Hotspur on deadline day in the transfer window, but his insistence on a permanent deal proved to be a stumbling block.

Krasic has made just six Serie 'A' appearances this term, and the Blues could move a move between now and the summer.

"In this moment Milos wants to stay at Juventus," Krasic's agent Valado Borozan said.

"There is no need to work on Krasic - we have to wait and see what will happen. Milos is appreciated everywhere, so we'll see which side will come forward between now and June.

"He is under contract and so far there has not been a need to start talking to other clubs.

"Chelsea? They are interested in the player and they are one of the clubs he likes."

Prior to his move to Tottenham Hotspur falling through, Krasic turned down a switch to rivals Lazio in the January transfer window.

Andre Villas-Boas brought in two new players in January, with defender Gary Cahill joining from Bolton Wanderers and Kevin De Bruyne making the switch from Racing Genk.

The Belgian has since been loaned back to his old club, Cahill made his debut for Chelsea in the 3-3 weekend draw with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.

While the point against the reigning Champions keeps Chelsea in pole position for the fourth Champions League spot, securing the sought after European place could be crucial in their hopes of landing Krasic next summer.
