Chelsea and Liverpool have been joined by a number of European clubs in the race to sign Juventus winger Milos Krasic, according to talkSPORT.

Krasic has fallen out of favour at the Italian club since joining the Serie A champions from CSKA Moscow in 2010. The winger enjoyed a successful first season, making 41 appearances as Juventus finished a disappointing seventh place.

However, Krasic has endured a difficult second season. The Serbian was forced to watch from the bench for much of the season as Juventus stormed to the Serie A league title without losing a single game, and Krasic made just nine appearances.

As a result, the Italian champions have permitted the Serbian international to begin the search for a new club, with Chelsea and Liverpool thought to be leading the chase for his signature.

They may have to seal the deal quickly though, as Real Betis, Fenerbahce and Borussia Monchengladbach are all also interested and ready to make offers.

Harry Redknapp's Tottenham also had a loan bid rejected in the January transfer window, and Redknapp may rekindle his interest if the price is right.

Reports suggest a bid of around £10m will be enough to persuade Juventus to part company with the pacy winger, but such strong interest could drive the price higher.
