And superagent Mino Raiola has told Dutch newspaper NRC his client is ready to look beyond Serie A.

He said: “(De Ligt) is ready for a new step… he thinks that too.”

The Netherlands centre-back captained Ajax at the tender age of just 18 before moving to Juve in 2019.

He won the Golden Boy award as Europe’s best youngster during his stint at Johan Cruyff Arena.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been keeping tabs on the wonderkid as he looks for solutions to his impending crisis at the back.

The Blues have FOUR senior defenders out of contract next summer.

Antonio Rudiger appears determined to leave Stamford Bridge on a free transfer, with the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain circling.

Thiago Silva has been holding on-off talks about a possible return to boyhood club Fluminense.

Cesar Azpilicueta looks to be heading to Barcelona as new boss Xavi wants experience to add to his raft of talented youngsters.

But one defender who could be staying in West London is Andreas Christensen.

Chelsea are confident of tying him down to a new deal soon despite interest from Barca and AC Milan.
