Kwadwo Asamoah: Linked with Conte reunion

Chelsea are looking to bring Juventus man Kwadwo Asamoah to Stamford Bridge over the summer, according to reports.

Incoming boss Antonio Conte is keen on a reunion with the player, who he signed for the Turin club back in 2012 from Udinese.

Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport claim Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is willing to spend up to £20million to land the Ghana international.

Asamoah has had his opportunities limited so far this season for the Bianconeri, appearing just 11 times in Serie A and failing to amass 600 minutes of game time in an injury-hit season.

The 27-year-old has been used in a range of different positions by Juve since joining, including left-midfield, left-back and in central midfield.

Under Masimiliano Allegri, Juve have adopted primarily a 3-5-2 system, with Patrice Evra occupying the left side of the midfield five in first-choice scenarios.

Despite this, Asamoah says his focus remains on winning Juventus a sixth consecutive Scudetto next season, and that his future is not away from Turin.

“Personally, 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 the club’s official website.

“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.

“My goal is to win back to back domestic doubles. Lifting the Coppa Italia again would be a great achievement but we’re not taking anything for granted.

“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.”
