Juventus sent scouts to watch Chelsea midfielder Oscar in action against Galatasaray in the Champions League second-leg match on Tuesday night.

According to talkSPORT, Juve officials were joined by Paris Saint Germain, with both clubs planning summer bids for Chelsea's Brazilian playmaker. The 22-year-old impressed against the Turkish opponents, as Chelsea ran out 2-0 winners on the night.

Reports in French newspaper Le 10 Sport claims PSG are preparing a €50m bid of their own for the Brazil international.

Juventus might not be able to match the financial muscle of the Ligue 1 heavyweights, but the report claims they are still considering putting together a package of their own.

Oscar has flourished as a key first-team player under Jose Mourinho this season, with Chelsea currently leading the Premier League title race.

He starred against Galatasaray, laying on Samuel Eto'o's first goal in the 2-0 win with a perfect pass.

Under contract until 2017, the report claims Mourinho will do his best to resist all bids for the midfielder, with Chelsea desperate to partner Oscar and Eden Hazard for the foreseeable future.

Chelsea progressed to the last eight of the Champions League with the victory over Galatasaray.

Manchester United are the only other English team that can join them in the quarter-finals, although David Moyes's side have their work cut out overturning a 2-0 deficit.
