Chelsea look set to complete the signing of Alexandre Pato on a six-month loan, according to The Sun.

The Brazilian striker is due to arrive in London on Tuesday night to complete his medical ahead of signing terms with the Stamford Bridge club until the end of the season.

Pato has fallen out of favour at Corinthians and had been loaned out to fellow Brazilians Sao Paulo during the previous two seasons, where he has scored 19 goals in 59 league matches.
