Roma midfielder Deniele de Rossi has stalled on signing a new contract putting Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City on alert to his availability.

The 27-year-old has only 12 months left on his current deal and if he refuses to sign a new contract the Serie A club will cash in on him this summer.

The Italy international is rated at £25million but because he can leave for nothing next summer, he could be available for as little as £15million.

Chelsea are in need of a holding midfielder following the injury to Michael Essien and De Rossi would be the ideal like-for-like replacement.

West Ham talisman Scott Parker is also on their radar but any deal for him depends on the Hammers wanting a permanent deal or a loan move.

Arsenal are also keeping tabs on Parker but could see De Rossi as a more long-term possibility, as Arsene Wenger would like more experience in his midfield.

City also want to strengthen in midfield with boss Roberto Mancini a long-term admirer, according to the Daily Mirror.

But new Roma boss Luis Enrique insists he wants to keep the 27-year-old.

“He is very important for my plans and it would be impossible to find a replacement for him in the current market,” he said.
