Chelsea have reportedly tabled a bid for the £100m-rated Juventus midfielder Federico Chiesa.
The Italy international starred for the Italian giants last season, scoring 14 times in all competitions, forcing his way into the frame for the EURO 2020 tournament.
He played a key role as the Azzurri won the tournament on Sunday, with his stock rising rapidly.
Juventus though have declined to even entertain talks for the 23-year-old, who is on loan from Fiorentina.
They paid €10m loan fee in 2020 and will pay €40m to Fiorentina in 2022 as an obligation to buy plus €10m add ons.
