Chelsea and Manchester City battle for Switzerland defender Stephan Lichtsteiner

Chelsea and Manchester City are fighting it out for Juventus defender Stephan Lichtsteiner.

The Swiss star has been with the Italian champions for eight years but it is reported he would consider a move away this summer.

Arsenal have been linked with the right-back in the past, while Bayern Munich too have expressed an interest.

However, according to Tuttosport, it is Chelsea and Manchester City who will battle it out to sign Lichtsteiner.

Incoming Blues boss Antonio Conte worked with the 32-year-old at Juventus and he is keen for a reunion at Stamford Bridge.

Manchester City, meanwhile, are also pursuing the player after Pep Guardiola added him to his list of summer targets.
