Chelsea and stoke city are combining efforts to bring Boca Juniors striker Jonathan Calleri to England.
TMW claims Chelsea and Stoke have decided that the striker will spend the rest of the season at the Britannia stadium on loan should Chelsea sign the striker in the January transfer window.
Stoke City and Chelsea have done deals before with Victor Moses spending last season at Stoke City.
The blues currently have central midfielder Marco Van Ginkel who is on loan at Stoke City for the rest of this season.
Boca Juniors chief Daniel Angelici has already revealed their plans to sell the striker in December.
The Potters were reportedly leading the race to sign Calleri until Jose Mourinho’s men joined the chase for the striker.
The blues have oust Stoke in the chase and are now favourites to sign the striker. Work Permit might be an issue for the deal to go through but the deal will be subjected to a UK work permit hearing.
Jose Mourinho is reportedly looking for a new striker after Radamel Falcao failed to impress since joining on loan from Monaco in the summer but Chelsea are willing to allow Calleri spend the next six months on loan in order for him to adapt to life in Europe without the pressure of playing for Chelsea.
