Ukrainian striker Andriy Shevchenko is reportedly all set to make a comeback to Chelsea. However, this time he will be returning at Stamford Bridge as a coach rather than as a player, according to a Daily Mail report.

In spite of his poor performances during his time with the Blues, that saw him score just nine goals from 48 appearances, the 35- year-old Ukrainian, who is currently still playing in FC Dynamo Kiev, is still close with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

The 2004 European Footballer of the Year, who had cost Chelsea a whopping £30million as a player, can accept the coaching duties at Stamford Bridge as soon as he decides to retire.

The former AC Milan striker, who is currently injured, has been reportedly making regular visits to the Blues training ground, closely watching the players practice.

Shevchenko, who has won many trophies including Champions League, Super Cup, Scudetto and Italian Cup with AC Milan, will decide whether to retire or not after captaining the Ukraine side at the 2012 Euros.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are reportedly closing in on Colombian sensation Radamel Falcao as a replacement for Ivorian legend Didier Drogba, who is speculated to make a move to China this summer, said the Daily Mail in another report.

After successfully securing a double (Champions League and FA Cup trophy) this season, the Blues are now reportedly planning their move in the transfer market this season.

Their main concern at the moment will be to get someone to fill in the shoes of Drogba.

Although the Blues have already shortlisted a number of possible candidates Napoli's Edinson Cavani and Real Madrid's Gonzalo Higuain for this position, Chelsea have reportedly put Falcao at the top of their wish list this summer.

This is because, Higuain's availability is still uncertain and Chelsea are still reportedly contemplating whether Cavani will be worth his price tag, which is a whooping £35 million.

Also, Cavani, who is also being targeted by Premier League Champions Manchester City, is looking for a deal that will pay him £150,000 a week.

On the other hand, the 26-year-old Colombian striker, who has scored 36 goals for Atletico Madrid this season, will definitely be worth his £50million price tag.
