Chelsea are interested in signing AS Roma utility-man Alessandro Florenzi, according to Calciomercato.

Florenzi is a product of AS Roma’s academy. Those born and bred in Rome often tend to stick around at the Stadio Olimpico – but Florenzi is being linked with a move to some of the biggest sides in Europe.

Calciomercato believes that Chelsea are interested in signing Florenzi, but we face plenty of competition in the race to secure the services of the Italy international.

The report claims that both Juventus and Atletico Madrid are also interested in signing Florenzi from AS Roma, who is reportedly stalling on signing a contract extension.

Florenzi has the ability to perform capably in a number of positions. His versatility could prove invaluable, and it appears as though Antonio Conte holds the same opinion.

Conte worked alongside Florenzi during his time with the Italian national team. Could he do so once again? Only time will tell.
