Cape Town - Speculation is mounting that Chelsea are willing to let Brazil international Oscar leave the club at the end of the season.

The Mirror report Oscar's future at Stamford Bridge looks bleak.

The Brazilian midfielder arrived in 2012 and has endured some measure of success but has reportedly failed to deliver according to the standards set by Jose Mourinho.

Since January 1, Oscar has featured in all but one league fixture for Chelsea but has completed the 90 minutes only twice (11 fixtures) and ranks among the league's most substituted players.

The British newspaper link Juventus with an interest in him while the same source suggest that Chelsea will look to West Ham United's Enner Valencia to replace Oscar in the Chelsea squad.

West Ham United will be determined to keep Valencia at the club as the Ecuadorian only arrived after the 2014 Soccer World Cup.

Valencia cost the Hammers £12 million.
