Serie A holders Juventus are reportedly leading the race to sign Pedro on a free transfer when his contract with Chelsea expires during the summer.

The Spaniard's current deal with Blues concludes on June 30 but they are likely to hand him an extension such that he can conclude the season with them.

However, there are no assurances that his contract will be renewed thereafter and he has already been linked with potential Bosman moves to AS Roma and Real Betis.

According to Calciomercato, the Bianconeri are said to have joined the pursuit of the attacker with manager Maurizio Sarri keen on a reunion with ex-Blues player.

Due to the financial implications of the coronavirus outbreak, the Italian champions are likely to restrict their spending to swap and free transfer deals and they have also been linked with the likes of Willian and Jorginho.

While Willian could be available on a free transfer like Pedro, they are looking at the prospect of signing Jorginho in a straight-swap deal involving Alex Sandro.
