Brazil head coach Carlos Dunga has likened Chelsea star Oscar to former Italy international Roberto Baggio and says the pint-sized playmaker would shine at Juventus.

In an interview with Tuttosport, former World Cup winner Dunga, who played against Baggio at international level, waxed lyrical about the Blues midfielder’s ability.

And he admitted the prospect of the 23-year-old linking up with Juventus forwards Carlos Tevez and Alvaro Morata is exciting.

He said: “He is a modern and versatile attacking midfielder, who can play anywhere in the attack. He reminds me of Roberto Baggio but he is not a typical number 10.

“An attack comprising of Oscar-Tevez-Morata would make any coach crazy.”

Oscar has made 38 appearances in all competitions for Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea side this term, contributing seven goals in the process.

Juventus and any other suitors would have to be prepared to part with a significant sum of money if the west London outfit did decide to cash in on the player, as he still has four years remaining on his lucrative contract at Stamford Bridge.

He put pen to paper on his contract extension last November after impressing last term, particularly in the first half of the campaign.
