Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen on bolstering his side in the January transfer window for the second half of the 2015/2016 season.
Arsenal and Liverpool target Alexandre Pato was spotted at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, according to reports.
Following the emergence of reports that the Brazilian striker is set to move to the English Premier league when the transfer window opens next month, he was reportedly present at Chelsea’s 2-0 win against Porto on Wednesday.
According to the Daily Express, the striker is being monitored by premier league giants Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham.
Liverpool were reportedly in advance talks with Conrinthians to sign the striker but his presence at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night could spark up rumours linking the 26 year old to the Bridge in the next few weeks.
The Blues are desperately in need for a striker to compete with Diego Costa and has been linked with several star players.
A picture of Pato on instagram surfaced last night with the caption:
“With Alexandre Pato at Stamford Bridge last night. Glad to meet you Pato.”

Pato’s presence at the Bridge remains a surprise but the Blues could surprise all by snapping the striker under the nose of their rivals Arsenal and Liverpool.
Chelsea have a number of Brazil international in their squad and should the striker move to Stamford bridge, he won’t have problems settling into the squad.
His injury records at AC Milan remains a cause to worry for both the Gunners’ and the Blues’ faithful but if the striker is over his injury days he will be a major coup for any club that wins his signature.
It remains to be seen whether Mourinho, Wenger or Klopp will complete a move for the striker when the transfer window opens, but one thing is certain Pato will me moving to Europe next month.
