Chelsea want Parma forward Giovinco

Italian football news website TuttoMercatoWeb claims that Chelsea are stepping up their interest in Parma’s Italian playmaker Sebastian Giovinco.

The report suggests that Giovinco’s agent, Andrea D’Amico, was a guest at Chelsea’s midweek 1-1 draw at Genk in the Champions League.

Last month, D’Amico commented: “It’s no mystery that Roman Abramovich likes Giovinco. He was struck by Giovinco’s performances against Chelsea for Juventus in 2008-09.

“Also, Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas loves the player’s technical qualities, and this means he is someone who understands football.

“Chelsea would be a nice club for Giovinco to join, but at the moment there is nothing concrete. It all depends on Parma. They will decide,” he concluded.

Giovinco completed a permanent move to Parma in the summer after having been co-owned with Juventus.

The 24-year-old has also been linked with a return to the Turin giants but is also thought to be open to a move away from Serie A.
