Andre Villas-Boas has targeted Juventus goalkeeper Marco Storari as a back up for Petr Cech, according to the Daily Mirror.

Cech was injured in training last week, and Villas-Boas is looking at a selection headache with the inexperienced Henrique Hilario to take the Czech international’s place.


And with only one more week before the transfer window closes, Villas-Boas is reportedly desperate to bring a more established keeper to Chelsea for if Cech should fall again.

Juventus are said to be considering an offer from Chelsea for a long-term loan of the stopper, and Storari, who signed for the Italian outfit last June for £4 million, would step in when Cech is injured and provide the backline with considerable support.

Villas-Boas sent Chelsea scouts to attend a reserve-team tournament over last weekend, and was particularly impressed with the keeper, to the point that he may give Cech some competition for his starting place.

Chelsea this week confirmed that they had come to an agreement with Valencia winger Juan Mata, and along with Romelu Lukaku, the club are starting to make some big moves in the transfer window.
