The agent of Parma midfielder Sebastian Giovinco has talked up the chances of his client joining Chelsea in the not too distant future.

Giovinco has scored six times in eight appearances for Parma this season following a permanent move from Juventus during the summer.

However, the 24-year-old has been attracting plenty of interest from Chelsea, according to Andrea D'Amico, with Roman Abramovich's admiration for the player dating back three years.

And, says D'Amico, Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas also has plenty of affection for Giovinco.

"It's no mystery that Roman Abramovich likes Giovinco," D'Amico told

"The Chelsea owner was struck by Giovinco's performances when he played against them for Juventus [during the 2008-09 Champions League campaign].

"Also, Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas loves the player's technical qualities, and this means he is someone who understands [football].

"Chelsea would be a nice club [for Giovinco to join], but at the moment there is nothing concrete."

He added: "It all depends on Parma. They will decide. Plus, we would have to wait for an offer."
