Deal close: Chelsea to sign international striker this week

Alexandre PatoChelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern haven’t moved from the sofas all day as they anticipate a nervy end to the transfer window, with our punters hopeful it’ll be a busy final ten days for the Blues.

One deal set to be completed by Chelsea imminently involves striker Alexandre Pato, as The Daily Express reports the player is keen to come to the Premier League and the Blues are negotiating a fee with Corinthians.

Chelsea’s struggles in attack have proved to be a major problem for the Blues this season and it’s a big reason as to why the West London side are languishing just four points above the relegation zone heading into this weekend.

Diego Costa has only just started to find form, whilst Loic Remy has been uninspiring and currently crocked Radamel Falcao has proved to be a disaster.

Therefore, Guus Hiddink is desperate to bolster his options this month but the club are trying to negotiate a fee for Pato- with the Blues possibly looking at making the initial move a loan deal.

Our landlord believes a loan deal for Pato would be the smart choice, with the Brazilian having no experience in England and no currently match fit.

Chelsea fans, how key is Alexandre Pato to your season? Let us know in the comments below!
