The Blues star was in action for Brazil during their win over France in midweek, the playmaker netting at the Stade de France, and the Daily Mail claim that Juventus scouts were in attendance and that the Serie A side are considering a move for the 23 year old.

Oscar has perhaps not been at his very best this term but is still a major part of Jose Mourinho’s first team set-up, having started 23 of Chelsea’s 29 Premier League fixtures this term, and as such one wonders if the West London side would entertain offers for the former Internacional man.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will see Steven Gerrard leave for the MLS in the summer and may see Oscar as a logical replacement for the Anfield fan favourite.

The Daily Mail claims that Rodgers has a hefty wish-list that includes moves to bring in a goalkeeper, midfielder and striker in the summer though his budget to complete such deals will be negated by whether Liverpool secure a Champions League berth.
