Stamford Bridge side chase Montenegro international.
Jose Mourinho is seemingly hell bent on improving his Chelsea attacking options and with the Blues pushing on with efforts to sign Napoli ace Edinson Cavani the Portuguese manager is also said to be ‘close’ to completing a deal to sign Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic according to the Guardian.
The 23 year old has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal for the best part of six weeks but it appears that Chelsea may have stolen a march on their London rivals.
The Montenegro international has finished as Fiorentina’s top scorer in each of the last two seasons, scoring 27 Serie A goals in the process, and seemingly boss Vincenzo Montella has already planned for his departure by bringing in Giuseppe Rossi from Villarreal.
Fernando Torres could well be on his way after once again failing to deliver the goods in the Premier League, scoring freely in cup competitions but just eight in 36 appearances in the English top tier in 2012/13.
Indeed Mourinho may also be considering offloading Demba Ba, the January signing from Newcastle United managing just two Premier League goals since joining the West London club.
