Premier League giants Chelsea are ready to break the bank for Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci, according to The Telegraph.
It is no secret that manager Antonio Conte is desperate to reinforce his back line in the January window and the Italy hotshot is his number one target.
After failing to bring Bonucci to Stamford Bridge in the summer, the Blues are set to make a fresh assault on the 29-year-old footballer.
The latest reports suggest that club owner Roman Abramovich is set to offer over £60 million in an attempt to secure the services of one of world’s best centre-backs, which would be the highest ever fee paid for a defender.
Leonardo Bonucci was reportedly tempted to join Chelsea in the summer and he may decide to get reunited with his former boss Antonio Conte, having spent over six years in Turin, winning five straight league trophies.
