Talking about being bullish in the transfer market, Chelsea are currently on the cusp of pulling a double transfer deal for Alex Texeira and Alexandre Pato, this is according to the Metro.
Long before the opening of the January transfer window, Chelsea were linked to arrays of attacking players in other to stem their goal drought and move them to the first half of the Premier League log.
With less than two weeks to the close of the market, Chelsea are looking to reinforce their squad with assured attackers in the mould Alex Texeira and Alexandre Pato. Chelsea’s interest in the two Brazilians stems from reports linking Radamel Falcao and Loic Remy with moves away from Stamford Bridge.
The coach of Alex Texeira Mircea Lucescu had given the uncapped Brazilian his blessing to join the Stamford Bridge outfit but is holding out for a £30 million transfer fee. Meanwhile, the player has equally admitted that he is in the want of a move to Chelsea.
Alexandre Pato representatives have been working out a deal for the 26-year-old to return to Europe after several years of playing in Brazilian League. He was spotted at Stamford Bridge in Chelsea’s Champions League match against FC Porto. The Blues are now taking advantage of his situation to lure him to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea’s season has been marred by the horribly poor form of their strikers and Hiddink is looking for players that can play in place of Costa.
