Brazilian star Alexandre Pato has added to the rumours of his potential transfer to Chelsea when he was spotted at Stamford Bridge in Chelsea’s win against Porto.
This has induced huge talks of the star shifting to London in January itself.
It is known that he is interested in joining Chelsea from current outfit Sao Paulo next month.
The 26-year-old is a target for Man U, Liverpool and also Arsenal, but it is believed that Pato has plans to join Chelsea.
Even Tottenham are in the race for the striker, which seems unlikely since the big guns are ready to grab him.
Seeing him in Chelsea has obviously created a sensation at Stamford Bridge about his joining.
The Brazilian striker was in the stands watching Chelsea win 2-0 against Porto, that saw them into the last 16 of the Champions League.
Jose Mourinho apparently is ready to sign the striker, since he may provide the necessary firework to the line-up.
Chelsea have already lost a staggering 8 games this time and their horrendous run in the premier league is due to their lacklustre display.
Signing a striker like Pato would help add the dynamism in the team.
Chelsea are now in the 14th position in the league table and 14 points are needed to reach the top four inorder to qualify for the champions league.
With Radamel Falcao showing intentions of leaving the club and Diego Costa’s woeful form, the arrival of Pato would enchance the chances of goal-scoring up front.
Costa has lost his confidence which showed in Wednesday’s match, when he missed three easy shots on target.
Pato is currently under contract with Brazilian outfit Corinthians but has spent the last two seasons with Sao Paulo on loan.
The striker has netted 63 goals in 150 appearances for AC Milan over six seasons.
Such a talented striker would certainly do well to solve Chelsea’s woes in the premier league.
