Chelsea are poised to bring in 24-year-old Brazilian striker Taison to bolster their attack as misfiring striker Fernando Torres continues to falter. Taison, who plays as an attacking midfielder for Ukrainian side Metalist Kharkiv, was invited to Stamford Bridge to watch the tepid 0-0 draw with Fulham and to thrash out a deal which would see the player join the club for around £10m in January. It is also rumoured that he has received a work permit to play in England.
