Jose Mourinho is closing in on a deal to sign his former star player Samuel Eto'o, whose agent is London to materialise the striker's move to Stamford Bridge this summer.

According to the DailyStar, the Blues met with the Cameroonian’s agent, Claudio Vigorelli today and are close to completing the transfer.

Eto'o has been linked with several clubs this month including Inter, Napoli, Roma and Chelsea's arch rivals Manchester United.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho had made Manchester United Wayne Rooney his top target this transfer window.

On his second tenure with the London club, Mourinho wants to bolster Blues' attacking options and has been chasing the England striker for quite some time.

However, Manchester United have rejected two bids from Chelsea and are adamant to stay put the star striker at the club.

Eto'o, who has worked under Mourinho at Inter Milan, has been the alternative option for the former Real Madrid boss if deal for Rooney fails.

And, now it looks as if Mourinho will attempt to complete a deal for the Anzhi star in the near future.
