The Italian side want to bring in a player to replace the ageing Morgan De Sanctis between the sticks, with the 38-year-old unlikely to be able to continue as number one for much longer.
Cech’s potential availability has alerted a number of clubs since he lost his place to Thibaut Courtois at the start of this season, with Arsenal also emerging as surprise suitors this week.
