Reports have emerged claiming that Chelsea have entered talks with Corinthians striker Alexandre Pato.
The Telegraph revealed that Chelsea could bring in Brazil striker Pato after being hit by a Diego Costa injury scare.
The Spain international bruised his tibia in the 3-3 draw against Everton on Saturday and is a major doubt for the Blues’ trip to Arsenal on Sunday.
Costa’s injury could speed up Chelsea’s move for Corinthians striker Pato.
Stamford Bridge director Marina Granovskaia has held talks with the 26-year-old’s agent about a move.
Any deal for Pato could impact on Loic Remy’s future with the Frenchman coveted by a number of Premier League clubs.
