Chelsea have struck a deal to sign Samuel Eto'o from Russian club Anzhi, just days after completing a deal for Willian.

The Cameroonian international looked set for a return to Inter Milan; however, it appears the possibility of reuniting with former boss Jose Mourinho has swayed the 32-year-old.

Eto’o is passed a medical before signing a one-year deal with last season's Europa League winners.

It is yet to be seen if the four time African Player of the Year has taken a wage cut from his current  £300,000 a week deal.

Chelsea showed interest in Eto’o after it became apparent that Wayne Rooney would not be leaving Manchester United this summer.

Blues boss Mourinho seemed to have lost faith in his trio of strikers, Fernando Torres, Demba Ba, and Romelu Lukaku, so bringing in another striker comes as no real surprise.

Eto’o has played for Mourinho previously as he worked with the Portuguese tactician for two years at Inter Milan.

His departure from Anzhi was always on the cards as the club owner stated recently that he was looking to slash its wage bill.
