Chelsea are interested in signing AS Roma defender Dodo, reveals an insider

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.

Given his Samba lineage, Dodo is comfortable with the ball, to say the least, and is a legitimate offensive threat going forward threat.
