Raheem Sterling will enter in the final year of his contract.
Chelsea are plotting a move for Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling despite his link to Arsenal.
The Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano reports that Thomas Tuchel is interested in working with the Englishman.
Sterling has been linked with his teammate Gabriel Jesus who is on Arsenal’s radar. The Blues are now looking at the possibility of signing Sterling.
Sterling’s future is uncertain at Etihad. The Englishman will enter the final year of his contract.
The Blues would have to splurge around £50 million for Sterling, but City might hold onto him if Jesus joins Arsenal this summer.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are working on the deal to send Lukaku back to Inter Milan on loan with talks between both clubs in progress.
Tuchel wants to boost the attack in the summer transfer window and Sterling would be the best option.
