Abramovich likes Giovinco - agent

ESPNsoccernet staff

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 "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."
