The Metro.

New Blues chief Jose Mourinho has been heavily linked with the Italian international since taking the Stamford Bridge hot-seat, and is said to see him as the ideal man to add some tenacity to his midfield.

De Rossi has been linked with Manchester City for some time, but their interest has cooled since the departure of Roberto Mancini.

This has left the door open for ‘The Special One’, who is keen to take advantage of the 29-year-old’s uncertain future in Rome.

The enforcer is a graduate of the club’s academy and is considered to be one of their most influential players, but another season of missing out on European qualification , allied to changes behind the scenes, have caused him to consider his options.

Roma know that they may be unable to convince him to stay, and are willing to accept an offer of around £11m-£12m, a figure that Chelsea will be more than happy to match.

Mourinho is set for a midfield clear-out, with John Obi Mikel and Oriol Romeu close to moving on, which would free up space for De Rossi.

Chelsea fans, can your side make a title push with Daniele De Rossi in midfield?
