Chelsea want to sign both Raheem Sterling and Ousmane Dembele at the club this summer, according to reports.

The Blues will be looking to refresh their attacking options in the transfer market ahead of the new season, with some of their targets now being revealed.

Sterling has just won his fourth Premier League title at Manchester City, having made the move from Liverpool in the summer of 2015.

Over in Spain, Dembele could be set to leave Barcelona as a free transfer upon the expiration of his contract at the Nou Camp.

Both wingers have been linked with moves to west London, and it looks as though Chelsea may continue their pursuit of the duo.

According to the Daily Mail Thomas Tuchel’s side want to sign both players at the club this summer, and the German boss believes that the attacking duo are the ‘perfect fit’.

There are questions being raised over the futures of some of their current options in the forward positions, with the club set to listen to offers for Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech.

While none of them are yet set to leave the club, departures may still be a possibility as Chelsea aim to make up to six new signings in the transfer window.

City winger Sterling has just one year left on his contract at the club and it is believed that he is open to the idea of joining the Blues, with a move back to London seen as ‘an appealing prospect’.

The 27-year-old is set to make a decision on his future within the next couple of weeks, with Tuchel already holding positive talks with the England international.

Dembele is seen as a 'priority' for the Chelsea manager this summer, with the duo previously working together for a season at Borussia Dortmund.

They are willing to offer him around €8 million-a-year in order to complete a switch to Stamford Bridge, with the Frenchman close to leaving Barcelona as a free agent.

However his entourage have hinted that he may want to remain at the club beyond the summer, when they said: “Dembele wants to stay because the coach loves him, the player feels happy in Barcelona and is used to it.

"He is in his prime years, hence, the club's offer should not be far from the other offers we have."

Both Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain now look unlikely to sign Dembele this summer, therefore handing Chelsea a boost in their pursuit of the French international.
