Juventus still keen on Chelsea defender

Tuttosport reports that the Brazil international is still the top target for Juventus, who are looking to strengthen their defence before the transfer window closes.

The Old Lady have long been linked with a move for the former PSV Eindhoven defender.

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is reportedly keen on keeping the 29-year-old defender at Stamford Bridge.

Alex’s current contract at Chelsea is set to expire in the summer of 2013.
