Manchester United are said to be interested as Erik ten Hag wants to strengthen his midfield as part of his rebuilding at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils should ideally bring in one or two midfielders to replace the outgoing Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata and Paul Pogba, who are about to return to Juventus on a four-year contract.
But Chelsea has now joined the race for his signature, according to Tuttosport†
Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is said to have already called the Frenchman to discuss his situation in Turin.

The German manager is reportedly eager to welcome Rabiot to Stamford Bridge in his Chelsea setup, having worked with him during their time together at PSG.
Despite Rabiot only being left with one year of contract, it is believed Juventus are unwilling to give in to their valuation of €20m (£17m) plus bonuses.
Rabiot would like to move to a club with Champions League football, which could give West London a boost in the race against their rivals in the north.
He would also be a potential trade partner with Atlético Madrid to see Alvaro Morata return to Turin permanently.
