According to reports, Jose Mourinho is keen on signing Charlie Musonda when he leaves Chelsea in the summer.
The Belgian striker, 25, joined the Blues Academy in 2012 when Roberto di Matteo was first-team boss.
His seven first team appearances and solo goals all came in the 2017-18 season under Antonio Conte.
He was sent on loan to Real Betis, Celtic and Vitesse, but doctors suffered a horrific cruciate ligament injury and he only had a 20% chance to play again.
The former Anderlecht ace has not played in two years but has struggled to return to training for Chelsea and for the under-23 team.
But in November, Musonda revealed via Instagram that he would become a free agent and would leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season.
Even if Chelsea want to keep him, the current sanctions won’t sign a new deal anyway.
After opening up that emotional hour, the Belgian U21 international has been working hard to stay sharp and standing in the show window for the summer.
And, according to Goal, Roma is interested in signing him for free.
As Chelsea manager between 2013 and 2015, when Musonda was on the youth team, Mourinho developed a relationship with a reunited star.

However, Roma could face competition from Hellas Verona for his signature.
Mourinho has already taken Tammy Abraham from Stamford Bridge to Stadio Olimpico. The striker was impressive enough to bring him back to England.
