Alexandre Pato is being linked with a January move to Chelsea.

Italian publication Corriere dello Sport claims that AC Milan are willing to sell the Brazilian striker in the January transfer window, with Blues owner Roman Abramovich already setting his sights on the player.

Pato revealed in the summer that he ‘loves’ English football, and was particularly impressed by the way the Blues manager to win the Champions League.

"I talk to David Luiz and I didn't really believe Chelsea would win it. But they have a tight group and they succeeded in doing what the greats want to do and win," he was quoted as saying on ESPN Star Sports in June.

And, if the reports are to be believed, Kevin Prince-Boateng and Robinho could join Pato on the way out of the San Siro.

Chelsea have been heavily linked with a number of strikers this summer, with Atletico Madrid hitman Radamel Falcao and BK Hacken forward Waris Majeed both on the Stamford Bridge radar.

Pato wouldn’t come cheap to west London however, and the report claims Chelsea would have to pay good money to secure the player’s services in the transfer window.
