Chelsea are leading the chase to sign Vitesse Arnhem star Wilfried Bony.
Striker Bony, 23, has been earning rave reviews in Holland and has attracted interest from a number of top European clubs.
The Ivory Coast international scored 20 goals in just 36 games and was strongly linked with a move to Newcastle during the summer.
Reports in Dutch newspaper Telegraaf claim Chelsea are set to make an £8m offer when the transfer window re-opens in January.
But the west London club will have to act fast as both Napoli and Udinese are also following his progress and could make their move in the near future.
