Chelsea are ready to bolster their chances of winning the 2014-15 Premier League title by acquiring the services of Juventus wing-back Kwadwo Asamoah in a £24 million deal.

Reports in Ghana claim Chelsea are lining up a bid for the former Udinese star, who is currently sidelined with a serious knee injury.

Asamoah was injured during Juve’s 2-0 win over Empoli in November and is expected to remain out of action until late January at the very least - but the 26-year-old’s current condition has not deterred Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho from planning a surprise January bid.

Chelsea gunning for titles

Chelsea currently sit three points clear of second-placed Manchester City, and ten points clear of third-placed Manchester United, but Mourinho will do his utmost to ensure his side are in a position to challenge for multiple honours come the end of the season - and this is likely to involve strengthening when the transfer window re-opens in the New Year.

Asamoah is a two-time Serie A league winner who has made 92 first-team appearances for the Old Lady since arriving in Turin two-and-a-half years ago.

Asamoah: Versatile star

Mourinho might be prepared to pay such a hefty fee for Asamoah not only because of his quality, but also because of his versatility; this is a player capable of playing as a full-back, wing-back or central midfielder.

Chelsea fans: would Asamoah be a good signing for the Blues? Have your say in the comments section below.
