Transfer News: Juventus could orchestrate a move for Chelsea ace Andreas Christensen amidst contract worry
The Blues might be on the brink of losing one of their key defenders next summer, with Christensen only having about eight months on his current Chelsea contract.
The Danish centre-back is playing to his full potential under Thomas Tuchel and was one of the main reasons for the club winning their 2nd ever UEFA Champions League trophy last season.
The 25-year-old has come out with flying colours this season as well, having made 11 appearances and finding his first-ever goal for his boyhood club.
Moreover, given his age, he is one of the few centre-backs in the current backline who can become a mainstay in the future. Thus, losing him could turn out to be a grave regret for the Blues, and Juventus are planning on taking advantage of this situation now.
The Italian giants are looking to orchestrate a free transfer for the defender next summer and could seal a transfer in January itself. If the Stamford Bridge outfit cannot agree on a new deal by the end of 2021, the Dane would be eligible to enter into pre-contract talks with foreign clubs.

Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini are either on the wrong side of 30 or will turn so by the end of the current season. Thus, bringing in a defender like Christensen, especially during his peak years, will add a lot of quality to their squad.
Hence, it is down to the Blues to agree on a new contract with the centre-back as Tuchel looks to win the biggest trophies in Europe in the coming years.
