Milan star linked
Chelsea are being linked with a move for Zlatan Ibrahimovic as Roberto Di Matteo steps up his search for a new striker.
The Italian is keen to replace Didier Drogba and could now turn to the AC Milan striker after his attempts to land Hulk, Radamel Falcao and Edinson Cavani have so far proven fruitless. Ibrahimovic has been a class act down the years and again showed what qualities he has in front of goal when starring for Sweden at Euro 2012 and Di Matteo could now make a move. Landing Ibrahimovic would go against the remit of lowering the average age of the squad as he is now 30, but he would add more strength to the Blues attack and Di Matteo could see him as a good short-term option. It remains to be seen what kind of fee Milan would be looking for if they did decide to sell, while the player's wages would also be sky high and Di Matteo would have to decide if it was worth shelling out all that cash on a 30-year-old who has not played in the Premier League.
