Serie A giants AS Roma are interested in appointing ex-Chelsea boss Antonio Conte as their new boss, according to reports.

As suggested by Sky in Italy, the club are aiming to appoint the Italian in the summer. Fellow former Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri is currently in charge at the Stadio Olimpico, however his contract only runs until the summer.

After replacing Eusebio Di Francesco in March, Ranieri has only won three out of his seven games.

Conte, meanwhile, has been out of work since losing his job at Chelsea at the end of last season. Despite a tricky second season, the 49-year-old still departed Stamford Bridge with Premier League and FA Cup winners medals.

Conte was also highly successful during his last stint in his homeland as he lifted three consecutive Serie A titles with Juventus, the first of which being an unbeaten campaign in the 11/12 season.

He has also been linked with a possible return to his former club should Antonio Conte elect to leave Juventus this summer.

Meanwhile, Roma are still embroiled in a battle to earn European football next season. The team sit sixth in the Serie A table but are only a solitary point behind fourth-placed AC Milan. They are at odds of 10/3 with Betfair to finish in the top four at the end of the season.
