Striker’s representatives are in London, according to reports
Chelsea are on the verge of signing Corinthians striker Alexandre Pato, according to reports in Brazil.
The Brazilian forward has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League, but it was expected he’d join Liverpool, with some reports claiming the deal was already done.
It was claimed the Reds had agreed to pay £11.8million for the striker, but it’s now reported that it’s Chelsea who are in fact in pole position to sign the former-AC Milan star.
Pato to Chelsea
According to ESPN, Pato‘s representatives are in London and are in talks with officials from Stamford Bridge regarding a possible transfer.
It’s well documented that Guus Hiddink wants to sign a striker this window, and Pato could be deemed a cheap and feasible option.
