Chelsea have confirmed they have signed striker Samuel Eto'o from Anzhi Makhachkala on a one-year deal.

The 32-year-old previously played under Jose Mourinho at Inter, with a record of 53 goals in 102 appearances between 2009-11, and becomes the Portuguese's sixth summer signing.

Chelsea have tracked Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney for much of the summer, with two bids rejected, and Mourinho hinted last week that a third offer is in the offing before the end of the transfer window.

"It wasn't a hard decision. I saw the qualities Chelsea have, and I was very happy with Jose Mourinho before, so when the opportunity came, I was very happy to take it," he told the club's official website.
