Reports in the Daily Mirror confirm that the Serie A giants are confident of landing the 32 year-old, despite the Blues boss saying there is “no chance” he will be sold.

The Premier League joint-leaders recently allowed veteran back-up stopper Mark Schwarzer to leave for Leicester on an 18-month permanent deal, and now had extra motivation to keep their number two.

As the source explains, Cech, Chelsea’s first choice for over a decade, has publicly admitted to being frustrated at sitting on the bench with young Belgian Thibault Courtois now ahead of him in the pecking order, and his frustration has sparked interest from a clutch of clubs in Europe.

Despite these latest rumours, Mourinho commented on Sunday that any potential move would not be happening. Liverpool are believed to be watching the situation with interest, ready to pounce if Roma make any progress.
