Bianconeri keen on double Chelsea deal

Published Add your comment

Serie A giants Juventus want to sign Chelsea pair Raul Meireles and Salomon Kalou, according to The Mirror.

Meireles could be sacrificed in a summer clear-out at Stamford Bridge, while Kalou is out contract at the end of the season.

Juventus, who spent €94 million on players last summer, are keen to recruit ahead of their first season back in the Champions League after a two-year absence.

Both Meireles and Kalou have played pivotal roles in Chelsea's run in the Champions League, which sees them take a one-goal lead to the Nou Camp in the second leg of their semi-final against holders Barcelona.

Kalou gave Chelsea a vital away goal against Benfica, while Meireles' late strike in the return game at Stamford Bridge helped the club into the last four.

The Ivory Coast winger has been linked with moves to Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal, as well as Juve's rivals for the domestic title, AC Milan.

With sporadic appearances in the Champions League this season, Kalou is unlikely to sacrifice European football when he considers a move this summer.

Meireles, who signed from Liverpool just last summer, has had little influence in his opening season for Chelsea in the Premier League.
