Chelsea to make shock January offer for Newcastle star

Jose Mourinho could make a sensational January effort to sign Newcastle full-back Davide Santon, according to French newspaper Le 10 Sport.

Chelsea seem set to be in for a very busy winter transfer window, with a number of high-profile targets being linked with the club.

And now it seems Santon, a former protege of Mourinho during their time at Inter Milan, could be the subject of an offer, as its been rumoured that the Portuguese coach is interested in him.

It's the general consensus that the Blues boss is keen to put his own mark on the squad left to him by Rafael Benitez, and he perhaps sees the 22-year-old as a long-term replacement for the ageing Ashley Cole.

Santon, who arrived at St. James' Park in 2011 after ultimately failing to make the grade at Inter, has been impressive in the left-back berth and may just be tempted by a move that would reunite him with his old mentor. 

It is believed that Alan Pardew is determined to keep hold of his most influential players, but Newcastle could be lured into a deal if a lucrative enough offer is on the table.
