Want-away Juventus utility man Kwadwo Asamoah could be joining English giants Chelsea in the summer, according to fresh reports.

Out of contract at the end of the season, the Ghanaian looks set to end his six-year stay at the Allianz Stadium, amid reports that the Old Lady are seeking to extend his stay.

Turkish side Galatasaray and Fenerbahce and Italian outfits AS Roma, Napoli and lately Inter Milan have all been strongly linked to the 29-year-old.

According to The Sun, Chelsea are the latest to join the chase for the Ghanaian, with manager Antonio Conte, under whom Asamoah played at Juve between 2012 and 2014, keen for a reunion.

It is understood that Asamoah will provide competition, or more aptly, cover, for first-choice Marcos Alonso.

Having been reduced to a squad player over the years at Juventus, reports say the Ghanaian has set his heart on a move away in his search of regular action.

This campaign, unarguably his best since 2014, he has made 14 Serie A appearances, including 13 starts so far. He has also twice featured in the Champions League. 

Last summer, Asamoah came close to sealing a move to Galatasaray, but the transfer fell through as Juve failed to find a replacement.

The Old Lady are said to be reluctant to let go of the Ghanaian amid speculations that first-choice left-back Alex Sandro could leave at the end of the season.

Five Serie A titles, three Coppa Italia winner's medals and three Super Cup golds make up Asamoah’s trophy haul in Turin.
