Chelsea seek defensive reinforcements in form of Roma centre-back

Chelsea are reportedly showing significant interest in AS Roma's Kostas Manolas.


According to Calciomercato, the Blues are eager for defensive reinforcements in January and may go after the 24-year-old Greek international.

Centre-back Manolas emerged on the radar of Arsenal in the summer but ultimately remained at the Stadio Olimpico where he has been an integral part of Rudi Garcia's side, playing every minute of the Giallorossi's seven Serie A fixtures thus far.

Jose Mourinho wanted Everton youngster John Stones in the most recent transfer window but with the Toffees making their intentions strongly felt, the Portuguese boss could now turn his attention to Manolas as he seeks to strengthen his flailing squad in January.
