Giorgio Chiellini is one of the most highly rated defenders in world football in the current scenario and has been an integral part of the Italian national team for quite a few years now. For his club side Juventus as well, he has been nothing less than a rock in their backline, guarding their goal with all his might and brilliant defensive skills.
The 33-year-old has been a part of the Bianconeri since his arrival at the Juventus Stadium in 2005 and has played a very important role for his club, leading them to a number of victories in the Italian Serie A as well as in the European competitions. However, this bond of 12 years, which seemed to be unbreakable so far, might be on the verge of shattering.
As per reports, Juventus have not opened contract talks with the Italian international and there is a chance that the player might look to ply his trade elsewhere in the next season. A number of clubs are keeping a keen eye on the development of the situation involving the contract of the Italian ace and might pounce on the chance to grab Chillieni, so as to bring in a hugely experienced player like him into their side and make it strong defensively.
Here are three Premier League clubs that should look to sign him next summer:
The coach of the reigning Premier League champions, Antonio Conte, is one of the biggest admirers of Chiellini’s abilities and the depth he brings to the backline, since his tenure as the manager of the Bianconeri. He has also played with the defender during his days as the manager of the Italian national team and will be more than willing to add him to his squad for the next season.
The Gunners have been facing problems this season as well as the last one in the defensive area and might like to add the 33-year-old to their side in the next season. The former English champions are well aware of the abilities of the Italian defender and might think of him as a good option at the heart of their defence in the future.
The Citizens have been under tremendous pressure to find the right combination in their backline due to continuous injuries to their players and should look to bring in an experienced campaigner such as Chiellini so as to add to their side for the next season and strengthen their backline.
