Chelsea are preparing to submit a new transfer bid, as their pursuit of Raheem Sterling is set to hot up.
The England international has emerged as a top transfer target for Thomas Tuchel’s side, and Manchester City are open to the idea of selling him.
However, despite the fact that the 26-year old has only one year left on his contract, City are driving a hard bargain and are rumoured to want up to £60 million for the striker. The Blues initial offer was rejected as being too low.
Personal terms have already been agreed with the player, with Todd Boehly personally leading the negotiations after it was announced Marina Granoskaia will be leading the club at the end of the transfer window.
Some Chelsea fans have been left concerned as to the lack of transfer business conducted by their club this summer, but all the indications are that all this is about to change.
