It seems Roma are interested in signing Chelsea center back Branislav Ivanovic. The Serbian has been a mainstay in the Chelsea defence for around seven years and his versatility has been a big boon for the London club.

It is this versatility that has lured Roma to bring the Serbian International to Italy. Ivanovic can play at both right back and centre back positions. Apparently according to certain reports, Roma have asked the Premier league champions about the price with respect to the sale of their Serbian defender.

Ivanovic endured a torrid start to this campaign and was severely criticized for his performances at the start of the season. Ivanovic, who has been a reliable right back over the years for the West London club, has picked up his form like several other Chelsea players under Hiddink.

However, the fact that Ivanovic is currently past thirty and is interested in a move to Italy may persuade Chelsea to sell the defender. Incoming manager Conte would then have to find out the perfect replacement for the Serbian, who will certainly leave a huge hole if he departs.

It has been reported that Roma and Chelsea officials met a few days back with respect to this transfer.
