The Italian international has struggled for game time during his time in Turin as he sits behind Alvaro Morata, Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala in the pecking order.

However when he has been handed a chance in the side, the striker has often found the back of the net, and he is on the radar of several Premier League clubs.

Norwich and Crystal Palace both failed with bids during the January transfer window, while Southampton and West Ham are also said to be in the hunt for his signature.

Chelsea are thought to be in the box seat as new boss Antonio Conte wants a new striker and will use his Juve connections to push through a deal during the close season.

Zaza could cost in the region of £20million, but it has also been suggested Juventus will wait until after Euro 2016 before selling as his price could rise with a good tournament.
