New Blackburn Rovers boss Paul Ince is chasing Chelsea goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini.

He hopes to take the 34-year-old Blues reserve and give him a new lease of life at Ewood Park after four years of playing understudy to Petr Cech.

Ince is also keen to put pressure on veteran American Brad Friedel, 38, as he gets to work in his new role as a Premier League boss.
