If reports are to be believed, Chelsea and Jose Mourinho are edging closer to securing the services of the €55 million rated Radamel Falcao.

The Columbian has been in sublime form so far for French side AS Monaco, scoring 18 goals in 28 appearances. Although the striker arrived in France this summer, he is now said to be unsettled at the club.With Real Madrid unlikely to move for the prolific forward, Chelsea are in pole position to land him at Stamford Bridge.

Jose Mourinho has been desperate to add goals to his squad as three of his front-line strikers have contributed a meagre 5 goals between them this season.

With sufficient money in the coffers, the Blues look all but set to break the bank for the 27-year old.
