Chelsea and Liverpool joined by Portuguese giants ‘with chance’ of signing Pato

Alexandre Pato has a chance of joining Chelsea, Liverpool, Sporting or Porto this month, according to his agent Gilmar Veloz.

The striker has been heavily linked with a switch to the Premier League this window, with Pato having been spotted at Stamford Bridge last month, and with him believed to be keen on a return to Europe.

The Brazilian forward was highly-rated on the continent previously, picking up the Golden Boy Award back in 2009, but suffered a number of injuries with AC Milan, and ended up returning to Brazil in order to return to form and fitness.

Pato has done just that, scoring a tidy 27 league goals in the past 18 months for Sao Paolo, and could get the chance to shine in England this year.

“The guys are working on getting an offer, but nothing Corinthians are yet to receive one,” Veloz said. “The January market is very limited.”

Veloz was then asked to name who is showing interest in Pato, with the two Premier League sides joined by clubs in Portugal as he stated: “Chelsea, Liverpool, Sporting and Benfica. All four have a chance.”
