Chelsea have received a boost in the chase for Boca Juniors hotshot Jonathan Calleri who is also on Inter Milan’s radar, when the January transfer window opens according to the Daily Star.
Argentinian giants Boca have indicated they are now willing to do a deal who has bagged 21 goals and 11 assists in all competitions this season and is rated as one of the hottest prospects in South America..
“He could be sold at Christmas as there are good offers and we don’t want to stand in his way,” president Daniel Angelici told Radio America.
“But at the moment, no deal has been closed, and there is only chatter.”
Chelsea had Calleri watched in Boca’s friendly against Mexican outfit Puebla FC last week as blues boss Mourinho is planning to overhaul his squad following their dreadful start to the season.
A new striker is wanted with Diego Costa, Radamel Falcao and Loic Remy managing just four league goals between them.
Costa bagged the winner against Norwich on Saturday to take his tally to three but loan flop Falcao is set to be ditched.
