Reports are out claiming that Roma defender Kostas Manolas is eager to move to Chelsea.
According to TMW, the Greece international is also wanted by Arsenal, but favours a move to Stamford Bridge.
The centre-back’s contract doesn’t run out until 2019, but he’s refused to extend his current deal which is being viewed as an indication that he wants a move.
Roma are viewing Villarreal defender Mateo Musacchio as a possible replacement for Manolas.
Chelsea could use the help in the heart of defence with John Terry ageing and Kurt Zouma still recovering from a knee injury.
