Chelsea are in talks to sign Anzhi Makhachkala striker Samuel Eto’o, according to Russian journalist Artur Petrosyan.
The editor-in-chief of Russian paper Sport-Express says the Blues will speak with the Cameroonian’s agent in London on today (Monday) but the 32-year-old’s wage demands are currently proving an obstacle to any deal.
Eto’o is among the best paid players on the planet, and reportedly earns around £300,000 per week at Anzhi.
The Russian club are attempting to cut expenditure by around 50 per cent this summer and have already allowed a number of players to depart, including midfielder Willian who is set to join Chelsea for £30m.
