Scolari To Swoop For Fabiano

Chelsea's Brazilian revolution is set to continue, as manager Luiz Felipe Scolari is reportedly targeting Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano The Sun claims the Blues, who have lost Claudio Pizarro and Andriy Shevchenko this summer, are prepared to meet Sevilla's £18million asking price for Fabiano. The Brazilian international had been strongly tipped to leave the Sanchez Pijzuan at the end of last season due to his fractious relationship with the coaching staff. Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United were all touted as potential destinations, but speculation has died down over the last month or so and it seemed Fabiano would remain in Andalusia for another season. However, he could be tempted by a move to Stamford Bridge, where he would link up with a number of his compatriots - including Juliano Belletti, Alex and Deco, besides Scolari. And the Brazilian contingent in west London is set to swell further in the next few days, as Robinho is on the verge of completing a £28million move from Real Madrid. Fabiano would cover for the injured Didier Drogba during the first month of the season, but the situation thereafter could become interesting given Nicolas Anelka's fine form in the lone-striker slot.
