Stamford Bridge boss plans striking switch.
Chelsea Football Club have been linked with a move for Alexandre Pato.
The Blues were heavily linked with the Brazilian international forward during the Carlo Ancelotti reign, as the Italian coach knows him well from their time together at Milan.
And reports in Italy suggest current Stamford Bridge coach Andre Villas-Boas is also a fan, and the Portuguese could make a move for the 22-year-old at the end of the season.
Pato is under contract at the Rossoneri until the summer of 2014, and it would cost a fee of around £40million to persuade the Serie A giants to sell.
Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is reportedly considering making big changes to the attacking third of his Blues squad. Though the young Portuguese boss has a great many talented striking options to pick from he is still not happy with what he is getting from his established stars.
Fernando Torres has struggled to make an impact and many sources believe that if a decent offer comes in for the Spaniard then it may be accepted. Villas-Boas is keen to plan for the future and therefore has a lot of faith in the likes of Juan Mata, Daniel Sturridge and Romelu Lukaku but may feel that the time is right to call time on the careers of veterans Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka as well as back up attacker Salomon Kalou.
To this end a move for AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato makes a great deal of sense and the Brazilian is said to be unhappy at the San Siro and the 22 year old Brazilian has made just three Serie A appearances this term and may well be ready to call time on his four year spell at the club.
Clearly a move for the youngster won’t come cheap and the Chelsea boss would have to clear some personnel out before welcoming in a new striker.
La Liga big spenders Malaga are said to want Torres and Tottenham have been strongly linked with both Anelka and Drogba whilst Arsenal may well finally make a move for Kalou, a player that Wenger has admitted being a fan of for a couple of seasons now.
