Chelsea are reported to be in advanced talks with Porto over a proposed deal for African winger Christian Atsu.
The highly-rated 21-year-old is said to be on Jose Mourinho's wanted list and the Portuguese is hoping to push through a deal well before Monday's transfer deadline.
The Ghana international has also been linked with Tottenham but Mourinho, who has already pipped Andre Villas-Boas to the signing of Willian, appears to be in the box seat to do a deal.
Reports claim that Atsu is set to jet in for a medical and the move could also clear the way for Liverpool to swoop for Chelsea winger Victor Moses on a season-long loan deal.
