Thomas Tuchel has already spoken to Raheem Sterling about his role in his Chelsea squad as the Blues prepare to make their opening bid for the English international.

The Chelsea manager has identified Sterling as a key target this summer with new owner Todd Boehly ready to support his manager in the transfer market.

Sterling has just one year left on his contract at Manchester City and has been considering his options since the end of the 2021-’22 season.

The Guardian reports that a bid between £ 50 million and £ 60 million will be enough to bring the English international to Stamford Bridge.

Although there have been positive discussions between Tuchel and Sterling, no personal terms have been agreed at this stage.

Sterling joined City from Liverpool in 2015 on a £ 49m deal and scored 131 goals in 339 appearances for the Manchester club.

While Tuchel is keen to reform Chelsea’s attack with Romelu Lukaku ready to return to Inter Milan, reinforcements are desperately needed after the departure of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.

Chelsea are keen to sign Juventus star Matthijs De Ligt with an offer of € 40 million (£ 34.4 million) plus Timo Werner who has already been rejected by Serie A giants.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Juventus have asked Chelsea to pay € 70 million (£ 60.3 million) and include Werner as part of their deal for De Ligt.
