Chelsea agree deal with Boca Juniors for Jonathan Calleri
Chelsea have agreed to sign Argentinean striker Jonathan Calleri from Boca Juniors, according to reports.
Calleri, 22, has been in fine form for Boca this season, scoring 21 goals and providing 11 assists in all competitions.
Chelsea are in the market for a new striker with their current forwards managing just four goals between them this campaign.
And according to French leading newspaper L’Equipe, additional firepower is set to arrive in the form of Calleri, with the Blues reportedly striking a deal worth £6.2million to sign the player in January.
It’s also claimed that Chelsea will loan the player when he arrives, although they may be forced to hand him a starting berth if their striking woes persist.
Jose Mourinho is likely to move for a number of targets in the new year, but it appears that Calleri will be the club’s first signing in the winter window.
