Chelsea are shopping in Florence to boost Andre Villas-Boas' squad.

Chelsea are shopping in Florence to boost Andre Villas-Boas' squad.

Florence sources say while Chelsea chiefs remain determined to land Fiorentina star Stevan Jovetic, his teammates Alessio Cerci and Juan Manuel Vargas are also on the agenda.

Peru international left-back Vargas would arrive as cover - and a potential successor - for Ashley Cole, while winger Cerci, also a confirmed target for Manchester City, suits the pace and creativity Villas-Boas wants his midfield to now play with.

The priority, meanwhile, remains striker Jovetic, whose agent is scheduled to meet with Fiorentina directors next week to discuss his situation.
