Chelsea star Oscar is reportedly being targeted by Chinese club Jiangsu Suning, who will return for the Brazilian playmaker in the summer having made a huge January bid for him.
According to Antony Kastrinakis in the Sun, Jiangsu Suning recently had a £57.5 million bid for Oscar rejected by the Blues, but they have not yet given up hope of signing him at the end of the season.
The 24-year-old’s contract at Stamford Bridge runs until 2019, but the spendthrift Chinese outfit clearly don’t see that as an obstacle in their attempt to add Oscar to their squad to join recent high-profile signings Ramires and Alex Teixeira, the latter of which was confirmed on Friday.
Chelsea’s rejection of Jiangsu’s initial huge bid is a fairly definitive statement that they want to keep Oscar at the club.
Though he has not been an ever-present in the Blues first team this season, he has started 15 of their 24 Premier League games and is still a vital attacking outlet, per WhoScored.com.
