Inter and Roma keen on Cech

Petr Cech

The Daily Star reports Petr Cech is the target for two Italian sides.

The Czech goalkeeper is reportedly the target of both Inter Milan and Roma, who are looking for experience to shore up their backline for the next campaign.

The Nerazzurri and their current goalkeeper, Samir Handanovic, are far from signing a contract extension and the Slovenian is set to leave Roberto Mancini‘s side next summer. Now, the Serie A side want a real number one to guard their goal.

Roma would like to replace their current keeper, Morgan De Sanctis, a veteran that next season is set to be the second-choice goalkeeper in the Giallorossi squad.

Cech, 32, has mostly been a bench warmer this season. Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has repeatedly favoured Belgian keeper Thibaut Courtois, which in turn has made Cech open to a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer.

Southampton and other Premier League clubs are also reportedly interested in Cech, who moved to Chelsea in 2004.
