Chelsea star Samuel Eto’o could be poised to make a dramatic return to Inter Milan this summer as they look to continue their revamp of the squad, according to the Metro.
The paper claims that the Cameroonian forward, along with Tottenham star Etienne Capoue, is a target of the Serie A giants as new owner Erick Thohir seeks to build a squad capable of challenging for major honours.
Since Eto’o was only taken to Stamford Bridge on a one-year deal last summer, there are those who are tipping him to move once again at the end of this season. Despite initially billed as being a solution to the Blues striking problems, the 32-year-old has only managed to find the net eight goals in 24 appearances this season, six of which were in the Premier League.
It’s not exactly awe-inspiring form and, with Roman Abramovich heavily tipped to throw a considerable amount of financial muscle behind Jose Mourinho’s plans to lure one of the world’s best strikers to Stamford Bridge, Eto’o may well find himself surplus to requirements at this term’s end.
Of course the Chelsea man isn’t the only star currently plying his trade in England’s top flight that Inter have placed on their radar. Reports suggest that Nemanja Vidic is all but certain to make the switch to the Serie A this summer, and the likes of Patrice Evra and Bacary Sagna could join him there.
