Roma are plotting an unprecedented move for Chelsea defender Gary Cahill, according to the Evening Standard.

Manager Luciano Spalletti is believed to be monitoring the centre-back as the latter considers his options away from Stamford Bridge after falling out of favour with Blues manager Guus Hiddink.

Cahill has featured just twice under the Dutchman since he took charge of his second Chelsea spell against Watford on Boxing Day.

Kurt Zouma seems to have permanently taken over as first-choice partner to John Terry in the centre of defence, leaving the 30-year-old fretting over his chances of representing England at Euro 2016.

Cahill is eager to secure regular football ahead of the tournament in France this summer, though the reigning Premier League champions are likely to demand a premium fee to let him move on this month.

Reports suggest Spalletti wants the former Bolton star to strengthen his defensive options as his side look to build on their fifth-place position in Serie A.

Kostas Manolas and Antonio Rudiger form the current defensive duo for the Italian side, but having conceded 24 goals in 21 games this season, it seems they could use some guidance from the more experienced Cahill.

However, Roma could face a potential obstacle in bringing the Chelsea man to the Stadio Olimpico due to his £100,000-per-week wages.

Then again, the Italians have funds in reserve following the £11.5 million sale of Gervinho to Chinese Super League side Hebei China Fortune, so a deal could yet be struck for yet another English defender.
