Milan ace linked
Chelsea hope to add to their Brazilian contingent by signing AC Milan forward Alexandre Pato, reports have claimed.
Roberto Di Matteo is keen to sign a new striker in January and after being priced out of a move for Atletico Madrid star Radamel Falcao, he could now turn to Pato.
The Brazilian has struggled with injuries after bursting on to the scene as an 18-year-old but at 23 he still has plenty of time on his side and could be an option for Di Matteo.
The Italian tactician is having to rely on Fernando Torres and with doubts surrounding the future of Daniel Sturridge, another striker is needed when the window re-opens.
AC Milan are ready to cash in and Pato could soon be joining Oscar, Ramires and David Luiz Stamford Bridge.
