With Juventus looking set to sign Chelsea Midfielder Oscar, The Blues are considering signing a replacement should Oscar make the switch over to Turin in January or in the summer. Reports claim Chelsea have agreed personal terms with the player ahead of the official opening of the January transfer window.
Oscar has been on the radar of Allegri for a long time since his wonderful strike against Juventus in the Champions League and the Bianconeri have made intensified attempts to sign him.
Oscar hasn’t featured quite regularly for Chelsea this season, with the trio of Hazard, Willian and Pedro preferred in that attacking midfielder’s position.
Oscar came in as a substitute in Chelsea’s win against Norwich last weekend and he scored a powerful header in Chelsea’s 4-0 victory over M Tel Aviv yesterday in the UEFA Champions League game.
Meanwhile Real Madrid playmaker Isco has been seen as a possible replacement for the Oscar. Isco who was red carded in the Clasico clash Barcelona has not enjoyed his season so far.
Rafa Benitez continuous squad rotation have not gone down well with the midfielder who was having regular playing time under former boss Carlo Ancelotti.
Isco might just be a surprise addition to Chelsea if Oscar decides to leave Chelsea inorder to secure regular playing time elsewhere.
All this could take place in the January transfer window so we’ll just have to wait and see.
