Eto'o at Cobham today to complete Chelsea medical

Chelsea will complete the signing of Anzhi Makhachkala striker Samuel Eto'o today. The Daily Mail says Eto'o will join on a £7million one-year deal.

Eto'o, the 32-year-old Cameroon forward, is taking a huge pay cut from the £17m a year that made him the world's best paid footballer at Anzhi and will sign on a free transfer.

However, Anzhi are understood to have sweetened the deal by giving Eto'o a multi-million-pound lump sum to get him off their wage bill.

Eto'o arrived at London's St Pancras station on Wednesday night, where he was pictured with super-agent Pini Zahavi, and is due to have a medical at Chelsea's Cobham training ground before finalising terms after his advisers held talks on Wednesday.
