Chelsea has entered the race for Manchester City striker and Brazil international Gabriel Jesus, according to Spanish news outlet AS.
Chelsea are fearful that a move for the Brazilian striker may be hijacked by Real Madrid, the European and Spanish champions.
Jesus, who scored eight goals in 21 appearances for Man City during their title-winning season last season, is set to depart the Premier League winners this summer after the signing of Erling Haaland.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is aiming to boost his attack this summer, and a move for Manchester City midfielder Raheem Sterling would pique his interest.
Todd Bohely, Chelsea’s new owner, will have to decide whether Tuchel wants the attacker on his club.
Sterling, who makes £300,000 per week, has made 30 Premier League appearances for Manchester City, 23 of which were starts, scoring 13 goals and giving five assists. In the Champions League, he made five starts and seven substitute appearances, scoring three goals and contributing two assists.
