Chelsea already in personal terms talks with player over summer transfer

Swiss international Stephan Lichtsteiner is expected to leave Juventus in the summer, after the arrival of Dani Alves at the Turin club. After an impressive time with Juventus, it seems Lichtsteiner is set to be moved on, to create space and bring in money.

Lichtsteiner spent three seasons at Juventus under manager Antonio Conte, and a possible reunion at Chelsea is claimed in the Swiss media.

According to Swiss newspaper Blick, Chelsea have already offered Lichtsteiner a three-year contract, and the player is valued at €11m. Blick reference Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport and it's unclear how much of the story is down to the Swiss newspaper, but it's no surprise to see Chelsea linked.

Chelsea, however, face competition from several other European clubs, including Inter Milan and Paris-Saint Germain, but the chance of playing in the Premier League and a reunion with Conte could work in the Premier League club's favour.

The 32-year-old made 37 appearances in all competitions last season, and has been a key part of Juventus, since signing for them in 2011 from Lazio.
