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.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
