Chelsea are rumored to be interested in high flying defender Alessio Romagnoli and have stepped up their interest in sending scouts to monitor him in recent games.

Reports in Italy, quoted by OneFootball say, Chelsea are willing to do business with AC Milan next summer as they wish to bring in Romagnoli to Stamford Bridge after the season ends.

At 23 years old, Romagnoli has attracted a lot of interest around Italy and Europe, and the West London outfit remain one of the favorites to complete a deal in the summer. The player himself would like to move away from the San Siro if Milan fail to qualify for the Champions League, a situation likely to happen considering the form of leaders Juventus, Napoli and AS Roma.

The Blues sent scouts to assess the defender’s progress in recent games and reports have it that their report back to Stamford Bridge have been impressive.
