Blues to move for midfielder in the new year.
Chelsea have apparently identified their first target of the January transfer window in the shape of Juventus midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah, according to the Metro.
The Blues are keen to add to their squad in the new year as defending champions Manchester City continue to close the gap on them.
And reports in both Ghanaian and Italian media are suggesting that boss Jose Mourinho has earmarked the powerful midfielder as he can play anywhere across the middle as well as at the back.
The 26-year-old joined the club from fellow Serie A side Udinese in 2012 and played a key role in their title win last season, but has found himself surplus to requirements this time around – making just a handful of appearances across all competitions.
Reports state that Mourinho will look to swoop in with a £24m bid in the new year.
