Chelsea are being linked with a move for Spanish international winger Santi Cazorla.

Cadena Ser reports that the Blues are tracking the 26-year-old after an impressive start to the La Liga season with new club Malaga.

Manuel Pellegrini's big-spending side landed the player from Villarreal in the summer transfer window, with Cazorla leaving El Madrigal after helping The Yellow Submarine reach the Champions League.

Despite his short spell of time at Malaga, Andre Villas-Boas is claimed to be tracking the player with a view to a possible Chelsea move.

The Blues spent big to bring Juan Mata to Stamford Bridge in the summer transfer window, and the former Valencia star's instant impact in west London has set a blueprint that the Chelsea boss will be hoping others can follow.

Cazorla would easily fit into the 4-3-3 formation operated by the former Porto boss at Chelsea, and his ability to use both feet would make him an ideal addition to the squad.

However, the report notes that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich would have to spend big to bring the player to the Barclays Premier League, given the recent nature of his move in Spain.
