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.

Promise

The promising Argentine took in a spell at Blackburn Rovers on loan last season, scoring once in 25 appearances.

That return is not the best, but the experience he picked up at Ewood Park could prove invaluable.

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.
