Juventus manager Max Allegri is interested in signing Chelsea winger Pedro Rodriguez in January, according to Tiscali.it.
The Italian is reportedly frustrated following the club’s humbling 3-0 defeat to Barcelona during the week, after beating the same club over two legs in the quarter finals of the competition last season.
Allegri is said to be seeking to strengthen his wide positions despite already having Douglas Costa, Federico Bernardeschi, Marko Pjaca and ex Chelsea player Juan Cuadrado in his squad.
Pedro is believed to be top of the Juve manager’s January transfer targets, but Tiscali.it say that the Serie A champions are unlikely to land the 30 year old with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte seeing him as an integral part of the first team.
Here is some of the Twitter reaction to the transfer story:

Some fans are however willing to consider a sale if they can get a certain summer transfer target in exchange:
50m + sandro and we have a deal
