Chelsea are planning on making some personnel changes in January and have earmarked Porto pair Jackson Martinez and Eliaquim Mangala as two ideal additions to the squad.
According to A Bola, Jose Mourinho is prepared to offload a number of current Blues stars to fund moves for Martinez and Mangala, as he attempts to get Chelsea's season back on track.
Martinez has been scoring regularly since moving to Portugal as a replacement for Radamel Falcao and a big move to one of Europe's more affluent sides is surely not far off.
Chelsea have a surplus of options in the centre-forward position, with Fernando Torres and Samuel Eto'o both finding the net in recent games, but this report suggests Mourinho does not believe he has enough firepower.
Power is something that Martinez will bring in abundance and his physicality would be well suited to the rigours of the Premier League.
Mangala would bring a similar physical presence to the heart of defence. The 22-year-old has really made a name for himself since moving to Porto from Standard Liege, breaking into the France team in the process.
