Italian giants Juventus are set to sign former Chelsea midfielder Kevin De Bruyne from Wolfsburg, according to reports in the Daily Express.

The reports suggest that De Bruyne could be a replacement for Juventus star Paul Pogba, who is attracting interest from the world’s best clubs. Pogba has been heavily linked with moves to Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City in the summer.

The ex-Chelsea ace De Bruyne is said to be worth around £25m – after impressing since his £18m January 2014 move from west London. The 24-year-old has played 61 times in all competitions for the German club, netting 32 goals.

Kevin De Bruyne didn’t feature too many times for Jose Mourinho during his Stamford Bridge career. But since arriving in Germany, the midfielder has enjoyed a fruitful stay at Volkswagen Arena.

The Belgium international’s goals and assist have helped Wolfsburg up to second in the Bundesliga table with just three games remaining.
