Roma’s Argentina international defender Walter Samuel has revealed he would like a move to big-spending Chelsea.

Chelsea already have a trio of international centre-backs in Marcel Desailly, John Terry and William Gallas, but Roman Abramovich has shown that he values quality and quantity and a move for Samuel cannot be ruled out. .

“I would like to play in London at Chelsea,” said Samuel to the Mirror.

“I have spent four seasons in Rome and I have already been a champion three years ago in Rome.

“Now I would like to look for a new horizon.”

Given Roma’s well-documented financial problems, there is a distinct possibility that the Serie A clib will be forced to offload Samuel in the summer.
