CSKA ace Doumbia deal in pipeline
CSKA Moscow striker Seydou Doumbia is a top target of Chelsea and the Ivory Coast star's agent has admitted a move could go through.
The 24-year-old has been watched by the Blues this season and reports in Russia say the Premier League giants are willing to pay in the region of £20million for him. Doumbia has impressed for CSKA, scoring 32 goals in just 49 appearances for them, to attract the attention of a host of top European clubs and Chelsea are said to be leading the chase for him. Doumbia, like Didier Drogba, is an Ivory Coast international and could even end up moving to Stamford Bridge as a direct replacement for his fellow countryman if Drogba is allowed to move on in the summer. Jean-Bernard Beytrizon, the player's agent, has been quoted by Russian media confirming Doumbia's first choice is a move to Chelsea and even hinted initial negotiations have taken place which could end up seeing the Blues land the striker for just under £20million.
