Premier League giants Chelsea have reportedly been linked with a shock move for Paulo Dybala, who is currently in the ranks of Serie A holders Juventus.

Dybala’s future had become a discussion topic during the early phase of the current campaign where he struggled to secure regular gametime with the Bianconeri.

However, he has since managed to win over manager Max Allegri with his workrate in both the training and playing field but this does not cease to have ceased the speculation.

According to Don Balon, the Blues are understood to have sent representatives to meet up with Dybala’s entourage to discuss a potential deal to lure him to the Premier League.

However, the Spanish publication cite that any move may depend on Eden Hazard’s potential exit from the Bridge and this may halt any transfer until the end of the campaign.

Hazard, who has only 18 months remaining on his contract, has been heavily tipped to join Real Madrid of late, and reports indicate that could become a reality when the season concludes.

Elsewhere, Mats Hummels has been touted for a potential mid-season move to the west London side with Bayern prepared to accept offers in the region of £30m for their centre-back.
