Chelsea target Samuel Eto’o is considering a move to Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala, with the striker refusing to renew his contract at Inter Milan, according to Talksport.
Eto’o is reportedly unhappy at Inter, and is chasing down a big money contract as his career begins to wind down.
Chelsea are said to have been chasing the striker for some time, and Andre Villas-Boas has yet to make a big signing since taking over the managerial post, leaving pundits to speculate that Eto’o might be his top target.
Anzhi Makhachkala is owned by billionaire Suleyman Kerimov, who is reportedly willing to pay a staggering £20 million a year for Eto’o’s signature. Inter are very tempted by the offer, as they could fund a move for Carlos Tevez with the money, but Chelsea are still yet to show their cards in the situation.
Eto’o’s age of 30-years-old could prove a problem for Chelsea though, leaving the Russian side to come to an agreement over a move for the Cameroon international.
