Chelsea have said that they want to sign Real Madrid's Brazilian forward Robinho and not Barcelona's Samuel Eto'o, and denied making a bid for the striker.
A club spokesman said: "We deny making a bid or any offer for Eto'o."
Eto'o told reporters that he has received offers from Inter Milan, Tottenham, and Chelsea, however Chelsea have denied making a bid for the Cameroon international. Chelsea chief-executive Peter Kenyon even claimed that Robinho might be the Blues' last signing this summer.
"I think as far as Robinho is concerned it is quite right he has been one of our targets," Kenyon told Chelsea TV.
"We have had several conversations with Madrid and he is a player we think would add a great deal to Chelsea.
"We have got a fantastic squad and that has been strengthened with (Jose) Bosingwa and Deco and I think the coach was just looking for one more to complete what he thinks is the perfect squad.
"There is still a long way to go on that one, but we are very, very interested and the clubs are in dialogue."
