Chelsea want Sterling transfer as Lukaku loan could open room for Man City forward

Chelsea are targeting the summer transfer signing of Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling with simultaneous talks to offload Romelu Lukaku still ongoing, GOAL understands.

Inter have offered a fee of up to £6 million to the Blues, but Thomas Tuchel’s organisation are demanding more for the striker as they look to create more financial space for a signing such as Sterling, who only has one year left on his deal with the Premier League champion

Chelsea are ready to compromise and let Lukaku go for around a £10m ($12m) loan fee – far less than they initially requested

How viable is Sterling for Chelsea

Reports in Italy have suggested that the England international could cost as little as £35m ($43m) this summer which would be well within the west London club’s budget.

Man City have failed in a bid to renew Sterling’s deal amid concerns about his status within a squad with so many other high-profile attacker

Chelsea have long held an interest in Sterling, who is open to moving abroad should a move to his home city London not materialised

There are concerns that City could make life difficult in negotiations for a rival like Chelsea, though Gabriel Jesus was previously offered to Thomas Tuchel’s side and is now in concrete talks with Arsenal

Is Chelsea active on any other transfer front

Chelsea are in more active negotiations to sign Sevilla’s Jules Kounde, who has broadly agreed on personal terms. However, there remains work to do on agreeing on a transfer fee.
