Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic is more interested in joining Juventus than Arsenal or Manchester United.

  • Matic could lose his first team place to Tiemoue Bakayoko
  • Arsenal have recently been linked with the Serbian
  • There was talk of a Chamberlain and Matic swap

The Serbian has been a constant part of the Chelsea midfield since they re-signed him from Benfica in 2015 but now looks set to lose his starting spot. Antonio Conte have recently confirmed the signing of French midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, which could push Matic to an exit.

According to reports from Italy, Juventus are interested in signing him. Matic was reportedly close to joining Manchester United, but that move has yet to materialise. Arsenal have also been recently linked with Matic, and there was even a suggestion, albeit a ridiculous one, that they could swap Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for him.

Should Matic leave Chelsea, he could command a fee of up £40m. For that price, Arsenal might not be too disappointed to see Matic move to another club, as they would look to spend that money on a more expansive midfielder.
