Ex-Chelsea striker Alexandre Pato in Birmingham, Spezia talks

Former Chelsea striker Alexandre Pato is being lined up for a return to England.

Pato has reached an agreement with Sao Paulo to terminate his deal.

Calciomercato.com says Aitor Karanka's Birmingham are considering bringing the former Chelsea and AC Milan forward back to English football.

However, the report adds that there is also interest in the former Brazil international from Italy, with top-flight sides Genoa and Spezia monitoring his situation as well as Serie B outfit Monza.

The Blues have only managed to find the net on three occasions from seven Championship games this season, and sit 17th in the table ahead of the visit of Huddersfield on Wednesday night.
