Agent: Chelsea owner Abramovich big fan of Parma's Giovinco

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is a big fan of Parma star Sebastian Giovinco.

The former Juventus midfielder, dubbed the 'Atomic Ant', is being watched by Chelsea scouts.

His agent, Andrea D'Amico, was eager to talk about a possible move to Chelsea in the future.

"It's no mystery that Roman Abramovich likes Giovinco," D'Amico told Sportal.it. "The Chelsea owner was struck by Giovinco's performances when he played against them for Juventus [during the 2008-09 Champions League campaign].

"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."

He added: "It all depends on Parma. They will decide. Plus, we would have to wait for an offer."
