Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o is ready to hand Jose Mourinho a major fitness boost ahead of his side's second leg clash against Paris Saint-Germain.

The 33-year-old has missed his side's last three games due to a knock he picked up against Arsenal at the end of March - but reportedly took part in Chelsea's pre-match Champions League session earlier today.

Eto'o, who scored after just five minutes against the north London side, sustained a hamstring injury against the Gunners.

Chelsea have lost two out of the three games since the Cameroonian's injury - which has hampered their chances of winning both the Premier League and Champions League.

Fernando Torres has failed to capitalise on his fellow striker's absence - while Demba Ba appears to be on the peripheral of Mourinho's first-team plans.

Mourinho is said to be willing to take a major gamble on the fitness of the former Barcelona star - in hope that Eto'o can inspire Chelsea to a second leg win against Paris Saint-Germain.

Chelsea go into Tuesday night's encounter against Laurent Blanc's side 3-1 down - having conceded a last-minute goal against the Ligue 1 moneybags.
