Jose Mourinho’s push for a re-shuffled Chelsea attack appears to be moving forwards with Sports Direct News reporting that Roma have set their sights on Blues striker Demba Ba.

The former Newcastle United forward struggled for form following his January move to West London, scoring just two goals in 14 Premier League appearances, and could perhaps be a player Mourinho would be willing to sell to make space for new additions.

The returning Chelsea boss brought in Andre Schurrle to strengthen his front-line and also welcomed back Romelu Lukaku to the first team set-up following a successful stint at West Brom last term.

Jose Mourinho has already made two unsuccessful bids for Man United forward Wayne Rooney but appears to have turned his attention to a veteran forward to help beef up his Chelsea strike-force.

Sports Direct News claim that Mourinho is keen to reunite with his former Inter Milan charge and it’s a move that former Anzhi boss, and one time Man United assistant manager, Rene Meulensteen is backing with the Dutchman stating;

“I can see it happening.

“I mean I know Samuel is a bit older, coming to the end years of his career, and obviously the English Premier League throws completely different demands on you, different than he’s been used to the last couple of years.

“But he’s still a very, very good player and if he’s surrounded by better players, if they can get him into scoring positions in the box he’s still very, very, very good.”


Indeed at 32 Eto’o is clearly no spring chicken but he has remained in shape and has scored goals in abundance wherever he’s played and could perhaps be the icing on the cake of an attack that would see the former Barcelona man join up with Schurrle, Lukaku and Fernando Torres.

Eto’o has amassed 288 goals in 543 appearances during a career that has seen the Cameroon international win four domestic titles and three Champions League winners medals.
