Chelsea are prepared to offer Eden Hazard plus cash to lure Leonardo Bonucci away from Juventus, claims The Sun.
It is well known that Antonio Conte is desperate to have the Italy international centre-back at Stamford Bridge, reportedly proposing €60m on transfer deadline day.
There were reports Chelsea were ready to pay €50m plus midfielder Cesc Fabregas.
However, Sun Sport claim that Conte is hoping to lower the costs by putting Hazard into the deal with a lower cash sum.
The 25-year-old Belgium international has been temperamental and struggled badly last season.
Max Allegri is intrigued by Hazard, but his presence would require a change of system.
