Chelsea playmaker Oscar is fighting for his future at the club amid claims Antonio Conte has deemed him surplus to requirements.
The 24-year-old has long been linked with a move to Juventus and the rumours are refusing to go away ahead of the re-opening of the transfer window.
Incoming boss Conte, who will officially take over from Guus Hiddink after leading out his country at Euro 2016, is thought to consider the Brazilian a dispensable asset.
Sources in Italy suggest Conte could offer the player to his former club for €35million while recalling Colombian winger Juan Cuadrado from his stay in Turin.
Juventus would be prepared to offer Oscar around €4million a season to leave the Premier League, however the midfielder is reluctant to move from west London.
He spoke this week about wanting to impress the new Chelsea manager between now and the end of the season after a disappointing 1-0 loss at Swansea.

"I try to play my best for Chelsea but it’s not just me, the whole team will try to win games to impress the new coach ahead of next season," Oscar said.
"We have six games left this season. We played well against Swansea but we didn’t win and now we have to focus on the next match because it’s very important for us.”
Conte is keen to freshen things up in Chelsea’s midfield with Nemanja Matic’s position also coming under scrutiny.
Tireless Leicester City star N'Golo Kante is being targeted as a potential summer recruit while negotiations are underway for Radja Nainggolan.
Meanwhile, it has emerged Chelsea could play a number of low-key friendly fixtures in Austria this July before embarking on a pre-season tour of the United States.
