De Rossi edging closer to Chelsea

Daniele De Rossi is edging closer to a move to Chelsea, with Il Romanista reporting that a deal is on the verge of being agreed.

Stories emerged in the British Press on Thursday that the Premier League club were in the process of targeting the Roma midfielder.

But today the Italian Press have confirmed that Jose Mourinho’s men are ready to make a €13m bid, with the player himself keen to sign for the west London club.

The Giallorossi are likely to accept the bid, but want to take Brazilian youngster Wallace as part-exchange.

It is not clear whether the Stamford Bridge would want to get rid of the defender, but Il Romanista believe that a deal can be reached.
