Chelse have made an enquiry for Juventus left-back Alex Sandro, according to reports in the Italian media.
The Brazilian international was the subject of a €60m (£52m) bid from the Blues in the summer of 2017, when Antonio Conte was still manager, and it appears they could reignite their interest four and a half years later.
With Ben Chilwell sidelined for the rest of the season with an ACL injury, Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel is keen to bring in some competition for Marcos Alonso, and it seems they have identified Sandro as an option.
The defender is now 31 years of age and, with his contract expiring in 2023, he will not cost anywhere near the amount the Blues offered for the player previously.
Any deal remains firmly down to Juve, though. Manager Max Allegri is reluctant to let go of first-team players and a replacement for Sandro would probably be needed before he is allowed to leave. With the transfer deadline fast approaching, that does seem unlikely to happen at this stage.
