Anzhi star Samuel Eto has admitted that he would love to reunite with Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.
Eto played under the Portuguese manager at Inter Milan in 2010 as he helped the Italian side to the treble.
Recent reports have linked the 32-year-old with a move to Stamford Bridge, with the Blues having seen bids for Manchester United's star Wayne Rooney rejected in recent weeks.
Now, Eto has hinted that he would be open to a move to west London this summer, telling reporters: “There is only one Jose Mourinho. I have played under a lot of great coaches but there is no other character in the game like Jose.
“He is one of the best coaches in the world – and we had a lot of success together at Inter. I would like to have the chance to play under him again – because it is never boring when Jose is around.
“Of course Chelsea are a great team - and when we have all the offers on the table then I will discuss with my agent and see what my next step is.”
Eto looks set to leave his current club, with the entire squad having been reportedly put up for sale due to a financial crisis at the Russian outfit.
And with the Cameroon international interested in a move to the Blues, Mourinho may look to bring the striker to the Bridge, if a move for Rooney continues to fail.
However, Mourinho may have to go head-to-head with ex-Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez, who is also interested in signing the star for Napoli.
