Roma are weighing up a move for Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho insists the club are yet to receive any offers for the 32-year-old goalkeeper despite mooted interest from Liverpool, Inter Milan, Arsenal, Paris St Germain and Real Madrid.

Cech has played against Maribor in the group stages of the UEFA Champions’ League this season, but is currently overshadowed by Mourinho’s current first-choice shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois after the Belgian returned to Stamford Bridge following three seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid.

Speaking in November Mourinho said: “On my desk, normally from my board’s desk the information arrives, I have zero. Zero proposals.”

“At this moment, Petr Cech is our goalkeeper and has a contract for two more years.””

“He’s a fantastic professional and puts the team’s interests first. Not once has Petr Cech knocked on my door to inform me of his desire to accept some proposal. This is my truth. Nothing more I can say.”

Cech’s agent has also said the likelihood of him moving in January is slim but Roma will weigh up their options once their Champions’ League fate is sealed against Manchester City next week.
