According to the Daily Star, Eto'o is high on Villas-Boas' list of transfer targets as the 33-year-old looks to make an immediate impact at Stamford Bridge after being confirmed as Carlo Ancelotti's successor on a three-year deal on Wednesday.

Eto'o earlier this month hinted at wanting to move to the Premier League this summer and after Manchester City "categorically" ruled out a move for the Cameroon international, the Blues could be in pole position to sign the former Barcelona forward.

But Chelsea will face competition from both Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain in the race to sign Eto'o, with both clubs keen on the forward.

Also on Villas-Boas' radar is Porto striker Radamel Falcao, who has also been linked with a move to Arsenal.

The Columbia international, who is currently on international duty preparing for the Copa America, is keen on a move to the Premier League.

And Porto have admitted that that they would be powerless to prevent the forward joining Villas-Boas at SW6.

Porto president Pinto da Costa said of the interest in his top players: "If there are contracts with release clauses, we have to be prepared that some player might want to leave if the stipulated figure is met.

"But I will not go to any country to negotiate.

"Just like it happened with Andre Villas-Boas, there will be no talks: there is an account number and money deposited there."

A third striker who could be part of the Villas-Boas era at Stamford Bridge is Neymar.

His club, Santos, have already confirmed that the Blues and Real Madrid will be allowed to speak to the 19-year-old Brazil international this week.

Reports on Wednesday morning suggested Israeli agent Pini Zahavi has already flown to Sao Paulo to help Chelsea complete a move for the teenager, who could join the club as soon as this weekend.

The possible arrivals of the three top strikers will signal the departures of Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka this summer.
