Juventus are keen to fight off interest in Leonardo Bonucci from Chelsea by offering the central defender a new deal.
Blues boss Antonio Conte has made bolstering his defence a priority in January following a disappointing start to the season and could return to his former club to sign Bonucci.
Juventus knocked back huge bids from Manchester City in the summer so Chelsea will face a battle to lure him away from the Italian champions in January.
The Italian press have suggested Chelsea could offer in excess of €60m for the centre-back, who would be interested in linking up with Conte at Stamford Bridge.
It has also been claimed that Juve have approached Bonucci to offer him a bumper contract extension to take him through to 2021 and to convince him to stay.
