Gilardino to Chelsea?

Football Transfer Centre

Fiorentina striker Alberto Gilardino has been linked with a shock move to the Premiership. It is believed that Chelsea are number 1 suitors for the forward's signature, and are ready to offer in the region of 15 million GBP for the player.

Gilardino is in superb form in Serie A this season, bagging 12 goals in 16 games.

The impressive strike rate has seen his value rise and has given the frontman the opportunity to move to Chelsea in the January transfer window.

Luiz Felipe Scolari is believed to be willing to allow forward Didier Drogba to leave the club, with Gilardino coming in as his successor.
