Juventus risk missing out on Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Axel Witsel.

Juve are locked in talks with Zenit over a fee for the Belgium international, but refuse to be held to ransom.

Indeed, Mediaset says Juve won’t budge from a fee agreed in August – which has opened the door to rivals, including Antonio Conte’s Chelsea.

Conte sees Witsel as midfield cover, with Oscar and Mikel John Obi both set to leave next month.

And with Juve being stubborn over their valuation, Chelsea could step in and nick Witsel away – particularly given owner Roman Abramovich’s good relationship with Zenit directors.
