Chelsea eye triple swoop as deadline nears

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is looking to bolster his attacking line by following up Juan Cuadrado’s imminent arrival with moves for Enner Valencia of West Ham and Shakhtar Donetsk’s Douglas Costa, according to reports from The Telegraph.

The Colombia international looks set to sign for the Blues after Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Montella admitted yesterday that a deal is on the verge of completion and that Mohamed Salah will be moving to Florence on loan as a replacement.

But even with Cuadrado seemingly in, his side sitting top of the Premier League table and a Capital One Cup Final appearance booked, Mourinho wants to add more depth to his squad.

Reports suggest that the ‘Special One’ is concerned that he does not have enough top class options at his disposal, with the shock FA Cup loss at home to Bradford having raised serious doubts.

Andre Schurrle looks set to leave Stamford Bridge to join Wolfsburg.
