Italian sports reporter and transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio is reporting that Jose Mourinho could turn to Enner Valencia if he fails to land other attacking targets.

A rough translation of Di Marzio's report is as follows:

It is no secret that Chelseaare keen on Fiorentina'sCuadrado, but the asking price for the midfielder ishigh. The English clubare not willing to pay more than 25 million euros for the winger, so under the current circumstances there will be no deal. The alternative, DouglasCosta ofShakhtarDonetsk, is more feasible in terms of price. While Chelsea consider these two players, they are also paying attention toathird option: Enner Valencia of West Ham. He is likely to be a cheaper alternative. 

Despite these comments, Valencia only signed for West Ham last summer for a fee that could reach around £13 million, and Chelsea would have to pay well above this price to land their target.
