TalkSport claim the Blues have joined the hunt for Boca Juniors forward Jonathan Calleri, rivalling Championship leaders Brighton and Hove Albion for his signature; whilst Inter Milan also hold interest.
The 22-year-old Argentine is tipped to leave his continent imminently to make an impression in Europe, after firing an impressive 20 goals for Boca this term; whilst laying on 11 assists for his team-mates.
Boca Juniors are desperate to hold onto their star-man but are unlikely to deny the player a chance to make his name in Europe, though they will demand a significant fee for the player’s services.
For Chelsea, Calleri is likely to be a replacement for the struggling Radamel Falcao, who has emerged as a January target for Fiorentina amid suggestions the Blues will cut-short his loan spell in West London.
