Stamford Bridge side line-up move for a number of additions this month.
Talksport claim that following the arrival of Demba Ba from Newcastle United Chelsea are keen on bringing in further Stamford Bridge reinforcements and this source has named four possible targets that the West London side may look to usher in during the January transfer window.
Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich seems to have gotten a taste for spending again having forked out £80m plus in the summer and could well be ready to further finance squad improvements after his side were dumped out of the Champions League at the first hurdle.
Chelsea have been tracking Metalist forward Taison for some weeks now and the departure of Daniel Sturridge leaves room for such an addition to be made to the Blues squad.
The £10m rated Brazilian international has apparently already met Stamford Bridge owner Roman Abramovich and discussed the possibility of a move to West London and now such a deal is gathering momentum.
As well as joining friend Oscar at Chelsea he could join fellow Brazilians David Luiz, Ramires and Lucas Piazon at the Premier League club.
Taison is into his third season at Ukraine side Metalist Kharkiv and has been a massive success, scoring and assisting regularly and would certainly be interested in a move to the Premier League side.
The adaptable attacker can play in an advanced central midfield role as well as on the flanks and was considered a very exciting talent whilst at Internacional prior to his move to Ukraine.
Chelsea will have to hope an application for a work permit for the 24 year old will succeed, a move that could be somewhat complicated by the fact Taison hasn’t been capped at senior level by Brazil.
