Earlier, Briefly News reported that The Blues were desperate to reinforce their defensive options in the summer and had set their sights on landing Sevilla's Jules Kounde.

However, despite coming close to signing the promising defender, the west Londoners missed out on him after Sevilla raised their asking price.

While Chelsea are still believed to be interested in Kounde, Metro UK reports his valuation of £68 million could be a put-off.

It is for this reason the European champions are now exploring alternatives and could now make a move for De Ligt.

According to Goal, Juventus will not stand in the way for the Dutchman as they are keen on a deal as they want his huge £280,000-a-week salary off their wage bill.
