Chelsea are now allegedly ‘favourites’ to sign Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish this summer, hoping to beat Manchester City to his signature.
Thomas Tuchel will be handed finances this summer to make a Premier League title push next season, therefore the Blues have been watching the England international for some time.
Erling Haaland, Romelu Lukaku, and Robert Lewandowski have all been linked with a move to Chelsea.
However, in the middle of the pitch, Grealish is an option for the club, although they face heavy competition from Manchester United and Pep Guardiola’s side.
Villa have placed a £100 million price tag on their prized asset, who has been one of the best players in the country for the past 18 months.
Chelsea are now leading the race to sign him this summer, according to Fichajes, after he fully healed from the knee injury that kept him out for the second half of last season.
At Stamford Bridge, there is expected to be a lot of movement in the transfer market over the next few months.
To balance the books, Chelsea will need to sign players in the opposite direction if they want to sign a new no.9.
