Transfer Rumour: Blues Eye Brazilian Ace Fabiano

Hot-shot Fabiano fits the bill as Chelsea boss seeks to boost firepower
Daily Mail - 11:55 AM on 03rd October 2008

Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari has been linked with a move for Seville's Luís Fabiano to boost his forward options.

A knee injury to Didier Drogba has prompted the Braziian to draw up a list of targets for the January transfer window.

Scolari has a habit of falling back on players he knows, a policy that could result in Chelsea signing another boy from Brazil.
Fabiano, aged 27, has a £12m buy-out clause and was the second-highest scorer in La Liga last season, with 24 goals in 27 matches.

It is understood that the scan of Drogba's right knee showed no serious damage, and that it is likely to be only a matter of weeks, not months, before he is available again.
But Frank Lampard admitted the Blues were a 'little thin' on strikers.

'Didier is a massive presence, as a player and as a person. He has been out for a few months over the summer, it was great to get him back and now we might lose him for a while.' he told The TImes.

'After being out it is not easy. He was waiting to get that rhythm back, he is a top player and this looks like a setback. We have a good squad of players, we have cover, but we certainly can't afford any more injuries in certain areas.
'The saddest thing is that Didier just overcame an injury, so it will be difficult for him,'
the goalkeeper said. 'The difficulty when you're out for a long time is always a mental one because you want to be on the pitch and you can't, then you need to work to get back your fitness and it takes time. You need to be patient.'

So what do you think? Will this progress further and possibly still materialize into a transfer in January? Will he make a good signing? He does have an impressive goal record from last season, 24 goals in 27 games is very good indeed.
