Premier League Champions Chelsea are boosting their squad in preparation for a return to the Champions League next season, and the Blues appear to be closing in on a £61 million deal with Juventus for their superstar Brazilian wing-back Alex Sandro.

Italian media house Corriere della Sera are reporting that Juventus have accepted a €70 million bid from Chelsea for the 26 year old defender and with Sandro having already agreed personal terms with the Blues, a move to West London from Turin seems imminent for the rampaging defender.

It will be interesting to see what Sandro's arrival means for Marcos Alonso, a star performer for the Blues last season in the left wing back role.

A deal is expected to be announced as soon as the summer transfer window opens on 1st July.
