Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato, who is also an Arsenal target, can soon be seen donning the traditional blues of Stamford Bridge, as it seems that it may not be long before Chelsea announce their capture of the current Corinthians man.

The former AC Milan prodigy was seen in the stands, watching the Blues play FC Porto in their crucial Champions League clash of Group G. The move may also be catalysed by the fact, that Chelsea has an array of Brazilian talents at its disposal with the likes of Oscar, Kenedy, Willian and Ramirez scorching the grass in southwest London.

The move will be crucial for the current English champions, as their recent addition in the striking line-up, Radamel Falcao, was listed amongst the ten worst Premier League players so far of the 2015-16 season, according to

Chelsea are currently in shambles with their title aspirations lying shattered. They were beaten 2-1 by Leicester recently and are currently displaying the worst title defence ever.

The inclusion of the Brazilian, however, might change the fortunes as Roman Abramovich’s boys need a spark to get themselves going once again. Pato, certainly has the spark. Currently, 26, he was signed by the Brazilian club Corinthians from the Italian giants, AC Milan for a fee of around £12.18m (AU $ 25 million). He scored from his first touch thus stating his arrival in Brazil. He was considered as one of the most promising players to take the world by storm in his youth days.

According to Belfast Telegraph, Pato’s return to the Premier League seems imminent, as a host of biggies are after the striker, which includes the likes of Tottenham, Arsenal and also Manchester United. Although, it remains to be seen, where the goal scorer ends up come the January transfer window, if he decides to leave Corinthians.

If Pato decides to reignite his second European adventure, after the first one was cut short by injuries with AC Milan, London seems to be the direction in which he will be heading to, as all the pointers direct him to the current Premier League champions, which was also stressed by his presence in London.
