Chelsea are clear favourites to land Inter Milan ace Fredy Guarin before the end of the January transfer window.
It had been reported earlier this week that Italian outfit Inter Milan were ready to part ways with the Colombian star, only if the Blues were ready to pay as much as £15 million.
And now it looks like Chelsea are in the driving seat to sign the 27-year-old, who has also been linked with a switch to Premier League champions Manchester United.
It remains to be seen as to whether Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will make a move in this January transfer window, but with the likes of Juan Mata having been linked with a move away from the club, he could yet make his move before February.
Chelsea's immediate attention will be on their trip to the KC stadium as they take on Hull City tomorrow lunch time. The Blues could go to the top of the Premier League with a victory against Steve Bruce's side.
