An insider claims that Chelsea are interested in securing the services of AS Roma defender Dodo.
"My understanding is that we're one of a number of clubs looking at Dodo at Roma," the source told Football Direct News.
"We've got a few players in mind, but he's been impressive."
Blues boss Jose Mourinho is looking for reinforcement at the left-back position to challenge season-regular Cesar Azpilicueta, with out-of-favour veteran Ashley Cole set to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.
The 22-year-old's last international scene experience was way back when he was still a part of the Brazil Under-20s squad, but now, he has the opportunity of making a name for himself in west London, should a deal push through.
