The Serie A champions have enquired to the availability of the pair, and are likely to get a different answer for each player. While the Brazil international is a key member of the Jose Mourinho’s squad, his Colombian teammate has had a torrid time at Stamford Bridge.
The 27-year-old has failed to manage a single goal or assist since arriving at the club last January. As a result, he wasn’t even on the substitutes’ bench for their 2-2 draw with Swansea City on the opening day of the season, with Victor Moses seemingly prefered as a backup winger by Mourinho. The former Fiorentina man may welcome a return to Italy after this experience in England.

The Bianconeri are also interested in Schalke ace Julian Draxler as they look to replace Arturo Vidal and Andrea Pirlo. The midfielders have left the club since their defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League final, meaning there is a large hole for manager Massimiliano Allegri to fill in the middle of the park.
