Cape Town - AS Roma are the latest club to enter the race to end Czech goalkeeper Petr Cech's nightmare at Chelsea.

The Daily Mail report that Petr Cech is a January transfer target for Serie A side AS Roma.

The 32-year-old goalkeeper has lost his place as the number one goalkeeper for the Blues this season and has become increasingly frustrated playing second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois.

Cech will reportedly cost £7 million but AS Roma will have to beat off interest from Liverpool, Inter Milan, Arsenal, Paris St Germain and Real Madrid.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said in November: "On my desk, normally from my board's desk the information arrives, I have zero. Zero proposals. 

"At this moment, Petr Cech is our goalkeeper and has a contract for two more years.

"He's a fantastic professional and puts the team's interests first. Not once has Petr Cech knocked on my door to inform me of his desire to accept some proposal. This is my truth. Nothing more I can say."
