Chelsea have set their sights on Sporting Lisbon striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel, reports the Daily
Attacking midfielder come striker Wolfswinkel has also been tracked by Manchester United who have a history of snapping up talented Sporting players having previously purchased Nani and a certain Cristiano Ronaldo from the Portuguese side.
With Chelsea seeking replacements for Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba as their respective contracts near their end, the West London club may turn to the Dutchman in the hope that he can recreate the success the likes of fellow countryman Robin Van Persie have had in the English Premier League.
22 year-old Wolfswinkel has become an instant hit in Portugal, netting seven times in his first nine league appearances. The player is thought to be valued in the region of £15 million, a potential bargain in today’s inflated market.
