Chelsea: Eto'o signing an act of desperation

Samuel Eto'o has completed his move to Chelsea, ending the club's hunt for a striker this summer.

The 32-year-old has proven in the past that he can score goals at the top level with successful spells at both Barcelona and Inter Milan.

However, despite this, the signing of Eto'o seems as though it's somewhat a desperate attempt to solve a big problem.

The former Anzhi man has signed only a one-year-deal with Chelsea, suggesting that he's not seen as the long-term solution.

Mourinho already has three strikers at the club that all have a good case as to why they should be the main-man.

Chelsea's £50 million man Fernando Torres has had a horrific time since joining the club, but he has shown signs of progression. Given the right amount of time, the Spaniard could once again become one of the world's best strikers.

Demba Ba has only been at the club for eight months. Although he hasn't necessarily excelled, the Senegalese international could still yet prove to be a top acquisition.

And finally, Belgian starlet Romelu Lukaku is yet to be given a real chance at Stamford Bridge despite an impressive loan spell with West Bromwich Albion last year.

Chelsea have already failed in their approaches for Radamel Falcao, Edinson Cavani and Wayne Rooney, and when comparing Eto'o to these stars Mourinho's decision to bring him in seems a very questionable one.
