Di Santo linked with Wigan switch

Discussions between the two clubs have now begun with both sides
open to the prospect of an agreement being struck. Wigan are keen
to bolster their attacking options following a disjointed start to
the season, while Chelsea are prepared to cash in on a player well
down their striking pecking order. With first-team opportunities at
Stamford Bridge likely to be difficult to come by for Di Santo this
season, he too is likely to favour a switch. The promising
Argentine took in a spell at Blackburn Rovers on loan last season,
scoring once in 25 appearances. And Wigan are prepared to take a
gamble on the 21-year-old frontman, believing that he still has
untapped potential. Reports suggest that they are prepared to offer
around £2million to take him off Chelsea’s hands.
