Chelsea are set to submit a new offer for Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling, who is one of their top targets this summer, according to reports.
The 27-year-old has just one year left on his contract at the Etihad Stadium, having just won his fourth Premier League title there in six seasons.
He has scored 131 goals and provided 95 assists in 339 games for the club, with his performances earning him consistent call ups to the England national team.
Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is beginning his preparations for the new season, with some of the club’s targets now being identified as they look to make six new signings this summer.
Sterling has emerged as one of the players of interest to the west London side, and a move would see him play for the third Premier League club in his career.
It is believed Tuchel wants the player at the club, and personal terms have already been discussed amid a potential move.
Former director Marina Granovskaia is also thought to have led the negotiations between the club and the player, before it was announced that she was leaving her position.
City value Sterling at £60 million and could compromise on the fee, with the Blues potentially in with the chance of signing him for £45 million as they look to begin talks in the coming week.
Tuchel has already held positive talks with the 27-year-old and he is one of the club’s top targets for the summer.
He will make a decision on his future in the next couple of weeks, with a departure from the blue half of Manchester potentially on the cards.
Ousmane Dembele has also been linked with a move to Chelsea this summer, and the Blues want to sign both him and Sterling in order to refresh their attack.
It has already been a summer of change at the club, with co-owner Todd Boehly replacing Bruce Buck as Chairman and Granovskaia leaving after nine years on the board.
Chelsea will also be looking to hire a sporting director by the end of the year, with the former Liverpool transfer chief Michael Edwards likely to be approached once again.
