Abramovich likes Giovinco - agent

Sebastian Giovinco's agent has claimed Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is an admirer of the Parma midfielder.

• Giovinco future to be decided

Giovinco, 24, has been in excellent form for Parma this season, scoring five Serie A goals in six starts to help keep the club above the relegation places.

It has been suggested Chelsea are keen on the Italy international, who is co-owned by Parma and Italian table-toppers Juventus, and his representative has firmed up the speculation.

Andrea D'Amico told Sportal.it: "It is no secret Roman Abramovich likes Sebastian Giovinco. The Chelsea boss was impressed by Sebastian in 2008-09 when he faced the Blues in the Champions League with Juventus.

"Also, if Villas-Boas really loves the technical qualities of the player, it means he is a football connoisseur. But at this moment, the market is closed and agents cannot be contacted."
