Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o will move to Major League Soccer at the end of the season, according to the Guardian.

The 32-year-old, who signed a one-year contract with the Blues in the summer, is not expected to extend his current deal with the west London outfit.

LA Galaxy, DC United and Club Deportivo Chivas USA have been tipped as potential destinations, while Seattle Sounders and Chicago Fire have also reportedly expressed interest in the Cameroon international.

Eto'o, who joined Chelsea from Anzhi Makhachkala for a cut-price £5m fee, has scored four goals in 12 appearances since arriving at Stamford Bridge in August.

However, only two of those goals have come in the Premier League, and it's believed that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho remains determined to bring in a world-class striker before the start of next season.

The Blues were linked with Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney in the summer, while this term they have been linked with AS Monaco's unsettled forward Radamel Falcao.

Mourinho will, however, have Romelu Lukaku back from his loan spell at Everton.
