Roma have emerged as a shock destination for Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko.

Shevchenko intends to leave Chelsea at the end of this season and while AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has declared he'd welcome him back to the San Siro, coach Carlo Ancelotti is dead against the prospect.

Tuttosport says Roma are waiting in the wings and if Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is prepared to keep down his asking price a deal could be on.
