Chelsea have tabled a bid for Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci.
RAI Sport says Chelsea have made a £39.8m bid for Bonucci.
Antonio Conte has acted on his interest in the Juventus defender with a hefty offer.
But the Serie A champions are said to have rejected the proposal and are thought to be asking for £47.5m.
Juve are keen to keep hold of their talisman and are in fact looking to bolster their defensive options rather than losing anyone.
