Chelsea turn to Juventus' Denis Zakaria in their frantic search for a midfielder... with a potential loan move for ex-Man United and Newcastle target discussed after Blues missed out on Edson Alvarez and Ibrahim Sangare
- Chelsea are considering a loan move for Juventus midfielder Denis Zakaria
- The Swiss man only joined the club in January from Borussia Monchengladbach
- The Blues are seeking new options after failing to get Alvarez or Sangare
After failing in efforts to sign Edson Alvarez from Ajax and Ibrahim Sangare from PSV Eindhoven, Chelsea have turned to the 6ft 3ins Swiss international, who moved to Juventus in January for £4m after leaving Borussia Monchengladbach.
Denis Zakaria could potentially move to Chelsea on loan as the London club seek a midfielder
The defensive midfielder came through the youth system at Swiss side Servette, before switching allegiances to league rivals Young Boys.
After two years there, the 25-year-old moved to Borussia Monchengladbach, making 125 appearances across five years, before his move to Juve.
He scored on his debut in February, less than a week after signing a four-and-a-half year contract at the Allianz Stadium.
This season, Zakaria started in Juventus' opening game of the campaign, but has since only been named among the substitutes, coming off the bench in Saturday's draw against Roma, and sitting out the other two fixtures so far.
Juventus play Fiorentina on Saturday, before beginning their Champions League campaign away to PSG on Tuesday.

Chelsea have seen attempts to get Alvarez from Ajax and Sangare from Dutch rivals PSV thwarted in recent hours, which has left the Blues scrambling to do any late business if they want to reinforce their midfield before the end of the year.
After a rocky start to their season, the Blues have been ambitious in trying to get new signings to Stamford Bridge before the transfer window shuts.
They will next face a Premier League test at home to West Ham on Saturday, before travelling to Dinamo Zagreb for their first Champions League group stage match on Tuesday.
