Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti intends to submit his shopping list to club owner Roman Abramovich tomorrow.

The Daily Express says among the names Ancelotti is expected to put forward will be AC Milan pair, striker Alexandre Pato and Brazilian compatriot defender Thiago Silva, in a joint deal that would cost the club about £70 million.

He may have to settle for lesser lights, though, with Abramovich known to be reluctant to spend the required £40m on another Ancelotti target, Atletico Madrid and Argentina striker Sergio Aguero.
