Juventus would be open to selling midfielder Claudio Marchisio at the right price, according to reports.

Apart from a loan spell at Empoli in 2007-08, Marchisio has spent his entire career with the Old Lady, racking up an impressive 370 appearances in all competitions.

Despite that, Marchisio only played 18 times in Serie A last season for Juve and reports suggest that one of their most iconic footballers could depart before the end of the transfer window.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Juventus would be open to the idea of selling the Italy international with Marchisio no longer feeling loved in Turin.

Juventus are understood to be interested in Roma’s Kevin Strootman and his arrival would knock Marchisio further down the pecking order in central midfield.

Marchisio – who has 55 caps for Italy – could yet be offered an escape route to Chelsea with manager Antonio Conte a big fan of his, having worked with him in the national team set-up and at Juve.
