Top of that list is Brazilian striker Hulk, with the Zenit St Petersburg star valued at £50 million.
"Starsport can confirm Mourinho has verbally agreed his Stamford Bridge comeback on a salary understood to match the £12m a year he is paid in Spain," the paper reports, adding that Hulk and long-term Blues target Radamel Falcao will be brought in while Fernando Torres is almost certain to be shown the door.
Chelsea have apparently, "agreed to offer Mourinho a three-year deal and total independence to choose who he wants in the transfer market." And, while Hulk only moved to Zenit last year, Abramovich's close business links with the Russian club's owners Gazprom will apparently smooth over the deal.
The Times follows up Monday night's controversy over the minute's silence - or lack thereof - in honour of Margaret Thatcher: "Thatcher tribute splits football" the paper reports.
Dave Whelan and John Madejski have both called for tributes to Thatcher before Premier League matches this weekend, but the paper reports that "football’s authorities are determined to resist growing pressure, both from inside and outside the sport, to hold a minute’s silence".
Rafa Benitez's promise that he will return to manage Liverpool again one day earns plenty of column inches, but nowhere more so than at the Daily Mirror - who splash the news all over their back page.
"I know I will return to Liverpool as coach one day, almost certainly. What I don’t know is when, but my wife and children still live there, so I will be back," he said, as if he'd be doing the Reds a big favour to even consider it, and that if he did condescend to return it would only be because it makes it easier to drop his kids off at school.
Phil Neville wants to stay in the Premier League despite announcing that he will leave Everton at the end of the season, the Daily Telegraph reports, with Aston Villa and Stoke City both keen to come in for a player who had been tipped to move straight into TV.
The Daily Mail reports that Arsenal have been quoted £15 million for Stoke goalkeeper Asmir Begovic after opening preliminary talks, with the high price primarily because Manchester United are also said to be keen.
The same paper reports that Manchester City are preparing a £10m package for Leeds to try and lure 19-year-old defender Sam Byram across the Pennines. Byram is apparently "top of a list of English players" that Roberto Mancini wants to bring in.
The Daily Mirror reports that Swansea want to sign Chelsea's Romelu Lukaku on loan for the whole of next season. The teenage striker - who was a sensation in Belgium but has been little more than a benchwarmer since moving to Stamford Bridge - has made no bones about the fact that he wants to go somewhere where he will play regularly.
And finally, The Sun claims that, "Andrey Arshavin will go down as one of Arsene Wenger’s worst signings when he leaves the Emirates at the end of the season."
The paper claims that the Russian's recent spell on the bench has meant that he's effectively earned £30,000 for every 60 seconds he's on the pitch so far in 2013: "His Arsenal career is fizzling out after four years and he now ranks as a bigger flop than the likes of Igors Stepanovs and Christopher Wreh."
There is talk that Arshavin could retire at the end of the season - a rumour printed in Wednesday's Daily Mail - but the Sun says the player has been "shocked" at those suggestions and will look for a new club to try and play his way into Russia's squad for the 2014 World Cup.
