Chelsea are set to make a move for Fenerbache striker Robin Van Persie, according to the Express.

Van Persie has scored twelve goals in twenty-eight appearances in all competitions since moving to Turkey, but could be set to make a dramatic return to the England having previously spent eleven years there with spells at both Arsenal and Manchester United.

The thirty-two year old is currently tenth on the list of all time Premier League goalscorers with one hundred and forty-four goals.
