Ibrahimovic could finally make his move to the Premier League.
New Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is set to allay the Blues’ striking concerns with the signing of Paris Saint-Germain star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The Swede has played for some of Europe’s biggest clubs during a successful career at the top, including spells with Barcelona, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus and Ajax.
Yet Ibrahimovic has never featured in the Premier League despite several murmurings in the past, but Mourinho is looking to change that by bringing the 31-year-old to Stamford Bridge.
In another prolific season for the striker, the Sweden international has scored 30 league goals in 34 appearances in Ligue 1 as PSG won the title for the first time in 17 years.
Ibrahimovic hasn’t failed to score more than 20 goals a season for any club since his first year at Inter back in 2007.
In fact the Swedish forward was top scorer in Serie A in both the 2011/12 and 2008/09 campaigns with both Milan and Inter respectively.
The striker also has a good working relationship with Mourinho having played under his management for two years at the San Siro.
During the career of the towering striker £149m has spent on transfer fees to secure his services, including £18.5m being paid for Ibrahimovic by wealthy PSG last summer.
For his country the Sweden international has netted 35 goals in 84 appearances and has featured at five major international tournaments, including two World Cups and three European Championships.
Mourinho is making new attacking options at Chelsea a number one priority, due to the fragility and lack of potency up-front with only Fernando Torres and Demba Ba available last season.
Romelu Lukaku will be returning after a successful spell on-loan at West Brom, but the sale of Daniel Sturridge and the uncertain future of Torres means a player of Ibrahimovic’s experience would be a welcome addition.
