Florent Malouda (Chelsea)

Juventus are ready to make a summer move for out of sorts Chelsea star Florent Malouda as a replacement for the retiring Pavel Nedved.

The French midfielder has not enjoyed a great season at Stamford Bridge this term, and voices surrounding his Blues future seem to suggest that an exit is likely. Reports have claimed Juventus are interested in the player and The Sun believes the Bianconeri will launch a summer bid for him.

The British tabloid claims Juve have around €12 million to tempt the Blues directors to part company with their man.

A source believed to be from the Bianconeri is quoted in the paper as saying, "We have looked at possible solutions and Malouda is high up on our list. We will see what happens in the summer."

Reports from England have always claimed an interest on Juve's part, but the Italian club have never officially moved to strengthen their position on the Malouda case.

However, the Old Lady directors have spoken about Werder Bremen's Diego. It is believed the Italian club will make a move for the Brazilian ace in the summer.
