Juventus reportedly had scouts watch Chelsea playmaker Oscar as Brazil beat France 3-1 on Thursday, with speculation hotting up that they could make a bid for the 23-year-old this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Chelsea transfer rumours
Oscar has been a key player for Chelsea since he joined the club as a youngster back in 2012, going on to make 148 appearances for the club and scoring 30 goals in all competitions, becoming one of the best attacking midfielders in the Premier League.
It seems unlikely that Chelsea would look to sell the player, but Juventus seem to be stepping up their interest in him ahead of the next transfer window, perhaps due to increasing speculation that star midfielder Paul Pogba is set to leave the club at the end of this season.
The Metro has previously named Chelsea themselves as one of the clubs interested in the Frenchman, and that too could play some part in forcing Oscar out of the team.
