Chelsea are readying a bid for Roma forward Mirko Vucinic this summer. Carlo Ancelotti is hoping that a bid in the region of £22m will be accepted by the Serie A club for the services of the Montenegro International who has been in fine form this season.

Roma have run Inter Milan very close in the domestic title race but could end up falling at the final hurdle but the fact that the Stadio Olimpico side have been able to challenge Jose Mourinho’s all conquering side has a lot to do with the amazing season Vucinic has had.

The lanky forward is having the best season of his career, netting 13 goals and assisting many others and whilst Claudio Ranieri will not want to lose the former Lecce man he may find it hard to prevent the 26 year old from wanting to make such a lucrative move to the Premier League champions.

Ancelotti is more than aware that his main strike pairing, Nicolas Anelka (more recently played out wide) and Didier Drogba are both 30 years and over and with that in mind the Italian is looking for longer term options for his Stamford Bridge attack.
