Roma are confident that they can capture Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech during the January transfer window, despite the fact that Jose Mourinho has repeatedly insisted that the Czech international stopper will not leave, as reported by the Daily Mirror.
Part of the reason behind Mourinho’s unwillingness to sanction the sale of Cech is the fact that the Blues allowed Mark Schwarzer, previously third choice goalkeeper at the club, to join Premier League rivals Leicester City.
Cech, who has been first choice at Stamford Bridge since Jose Mourinho’s first spell in charge of the club, has admitted that the return of Thibaut Courtois and his displacement as first choice goalkeeper has frustrated him this season.
This has lead to the likes of Arsenal chasing him heading into this month.
However, Roma are confident that they can snap up the £7 million rated ‘keeper.
A move from the Italian side would present a conundrum for Mourinho, as it would ensure that Cech does not move to rivals Arsenal during January.
