Chelsea boss Ancelotti eyeing Roma freebie Mexes

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is ready to step up his bid for AS Roma defender Philippe Mexes.

After scoring in Roma's Champions League win over FC Cluj, Mexes confessed his future with the Giallorosso remained up-in-the-air.

With Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich wanting a smarter approach to transfers, the prospect of landing Mexes on a Bosman next summer is appealing.

Rome sources say Chelsea are willing to double Mexes' €2.5 million salary to bring him to London next season.
