DiarioSport says the Cameroon ace has become Blues owner Roman Abramovich's latest obsession and the Russian billionaire is dreaming of pairing Eto'o with Ivory Coast star Didier Drogba in attack next season.

However, Barca are reluctant to sell and while Eto'o revealed talks had been held with Jose Mourinho in the past about a move to Stamford Bridge, he is currently settled in Spain.

Drogba has expressed an ambition to play with Barca next season, but Abramovich's plan is for him to stay with Stamford Bridge and spearhead a Champions League bid in tandem with Eto'o.
