Branislav Ivanovic has caught the attention of Juventus with his strong performances for Chelsea in the 2011-12 campaign, La Gazzzetta dello Sport reports.

The Bianconeri are keen to make a number of high-profile signings in the summer transfer window as they prepare for a return to the Champions League, and they supposedly see the 28-year-old defender as a valuable addition to their defence.

Ivanovic joined Chelsea from Lokomotiv Moscow in January 2008 and has since developed into an important first-team member at Stamford Bridge.

The versatile defender has a contract until the summer of 2016 with the Premier League giants, but Juventus are hopeful that an offer in the region of €8 million (£6.5m) will be enough to lure him away from west London.

Meanwhile, the Serie A leaders are also closely monitoring the development of Brescia duo Nicola Leali and Omar El Kaddouri.

The 19-year-old Leali is considered to be one of Italy's biggest goalkeeping talents, while El Kaddouri, 21, has impressed with a string of fine performances in midfield for the Serie B side.
