Chelsea duo Oscar and Juan Cuadrado could both be moving to Serie A this summer, according to reports.

Oscar, who joined Chelsea for £19 million in 2012, scored six goals in 27 appearances in the Blues' Premier League-winning season, and is thought to be happy at Stamford Bridge.

However, the Mirror says that Juventus, who are resigned to losing their influential French midfielder Paul Pogba this season, believe they can bring the 23-year-old Brazilian to Turin for as little as £9 million.

The Champions League finalists are already set to sign Real Madrid's German midfielder Sami Khedira on a free transfer and the striker Paulo Dybala for £29 million, and the addition of Oscar would complete a fine summer of business for the club even if Pogba departs.

 

Juan Cuadrado, who has failed to impress at Stamford Bridge since his £26.1m move from Fiorentina in January, has reportedly caught the eye of Inter Milan, who are ready to offer the Colombian winger a return to a league in which he flourished.

While Chelsea have become synonymous with big-name, big-money summer signings, Jose Mourinho has cautioned fans that the club's priority this year is to protect his current squad.

"The players I am looking for are my players," he said. "They are the players I don't want to lose, the players I don't want to sell, the players I want to keep, the players I want to improve."

Despite this, Didier Drogba left the club at the end of the season, while Petr Cech has been persisitently linked with a move to either Arsenal and Manchester United after losing his first-team place to Thibaut Courtois.
