AS Roma are chasing QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar.

The Brazilian will be offered a free transfer by QPR at the end of the season following relegation.

Rome sources say the Giallorossi are keen on Julio Cesar, with doubts persisting over the future of Maarten Stekelenburg.

Julio Cesar has been linked with Arsenal this week, but his wife was recently in the Italian press talking about her "love" of Rome.
