Chelsea have taken steps to secure the signing of Sebastian Giovinco after inviting his agent to their last match, according to reports.

TuttoMercatoWeb claim Andrea D'Amico was a guest of the Blues for the Champions League draw against Genk at the Cristal Arena, with Andre Villas-Boas' side drawing 1-1 with the Belgian league winners.

Recent reports in England have placed the Italian international on the Chelsea wish-list, although complication with the Parma player's contract, which is half owned by Juventus, could lead to difficulties in securing a deal.

However, the reports in Italy suggest AVB will make an offer ahead of the January transfer window, with the west London outfit hoping to bring the player to Stamford Bridge at the first opportunity in the New Year.

The diminutive 24-year-old would further add to the attacking options at Chelsea, joining the likes of Frank Lampard, Raul Meireles and Ramires as competition for a midfield birth in a 4-3-3 formation.

Villas-Boas spent big following his arrival at the club this summer, bringing young talent to the club in the shape of Juan Mata, Romelu Lukaku and Oriol Romeu.

And the former Porto boss has vowed to stick to his attacking philosophies despite recent poor results, meaning Giovinco remains a top target for Chelsea in 2012.
