Experienced international confirms he wants to be at Chelsea next season

Speaking to Radio Deejay, Chelsea goalkeeper Marco Amelia has insisted that he wants to have a role at the club next season.

The 35-year-old stopper, who has yet to feature for the Blues first team, joined the club in October 2015 after leaving his contract with Lupa Castelli Romani two months previously.

The experienced keeper—who has nine Italy caps—previously featured for Livorno, Genoa, Palermo and AC Milan, but has been reduced to a peripheral role at Chelsea, where he finds himself behind both Thibaut Courtois and Asmir Begovic in the pecking order.

Speaking to the Italian source, Amelia has insisted that he would rather stay on at Stamford Bridge and sign a new contract, rather than return to Italy.

“My future at Chelsea? I’m negotiating with the club, I am happy with the experience I made in London,” the 35-year-old began.

“Many asked me about [Antonio] Conte here at Chelsea, I have spoken with him a number of times this year.

Recent rumours from Italy indicate that the Blues are considering a summer move for Inter Milan goalkeeper Samir Handanovic during the summer.

Should the Slovenian stopper move to West London, it would become increasingly hard to see Amelia being kept on at the club.
