There has been some reports which have claimed Chelsea have joined in the hunt for Torino wideman Alessio Cerci, according to the SportsDirectNews website
The 26-year-old, who can play as a second striker or wide on the right, has appeared on the radar of a host of Europe’s top club’s after a fine start to the Serie A season.
Cerci has been impressive for Torino this season and has chipped in with a number of goals and assists.
He also has nine caps for his country, despite only breaking into coach Cesare Prandelli’s team earlier this year.
Now, reports in the Italian press suggest Chelsea will firm up their reported interest in Cerci by sending scouts to run the rule over the player during the World Cup.
Cerci, who began his career with Roma, arrived in Turin from Fiorentina in 2012 and was bought outright by Torino at the end of last season.
