The west London side recently acquired Willian from Anzhi Makhachkala and now look set for another deal with the Russian team for Eto'o.

Recent reports have suggested the 32-year-old was weighing up a return to Inter Milan, but after appearing to be out of the race to sign Manchester United's Wayne Rooney, Chelsea have made their move for a new striker.

Four-time African Footballer of the Year Eto'o was an integral part of Mourinho's Champions League-winning Inter side in 2010, before heading to Anzhi the following year to become the highest-paid player in the world.

Anzhi are in the process of slashing their wage bill with owner Suleyman Kerimov desperate to balance the books of the financially-troubled club.

Sky sources understand that Eto'o will be officially revealed as a Chelsea player by Friday lunchtime.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
