Juventus are willing to let Ghanaian midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah join Antonio Conte at Chelsea in the summer, according to reports. Asamoah, 27, played under Conte at Juve after joining the Turin club from Udinese in 2012.

Gazzetta dello Sport claims the Italy boss is keen on making Asamoah, who can play across midfield and also as a left-back, one of his first signings at Stamford Bridge.

The Ghana international endured an injury-hit 2015/16 season at Juventus, making only 11 Serie A appearances.

Gazzetta says the Italian champions will sell the player to Chelsea for a fee of around €20m (£16m).

'Bright future under Allegri'

After Juve clinched a fourth straight Scudetto, Asamoah said he was focused on staying fit and winning more titles at the club under Massimiliano Allegri.

"I'm delighted to be back in the action and working with the rest of the squad every day. I want to keep winning titles here," he told Juve's official website in May.

"I feel at home wherever the boss asks me to play; he is a fantastic coach who builds great relationships with his players on and off the field. The only way is up with Allegri at the helm, we are becoming a very good outfit under his guidance.

"As for next season, our focus should be on keeping up our good work in Serie A and going a step or two further in Europe — winning the Champions League is a dream we all share in the dressing room."

Meanwhile, Conte said he was "calm and content" as he prepares Italy for their Euro 2016 opener against Belgium on 13 June. Goals from Antonio Candreva and Daniele De Rossi gave the Azzurri a 2-0 win over Finland in their last warm-up game before the tournament on 6 June.

"The players are diving head-long into my idea of football, I see them enthusiastic about it and that is what satisfies me the most," he was quoted as saying after the match by Football Italia.

"There is a week to go and the training ground will be important in order to help me make decisions. We'll be playing every three to four days, so the important thing is that all the players march to the same tune, regardless of who plays."

Italy also face Sweden and the Republic of Ireland in Group E.
