Chelsea are in talks to sign Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City, according to reports.

Thomas Tuchel’s side are already in advanced talks to sign Raheem Sterling from the Premier League champions, who are demanding a £50 million fee for the winger.

Chelsea are also looking to strengthen their defensive options and are exploring a deal for Nathan Ake, who they initially sold to Bournemouth for £20m in 2017.

Chelsea had a £40m buy-back option in their deal for Ake but opted not to take it up, which paved the way for the Dutch defenders move to City in 2020.

But according to MailOnline, Tuchel and Chelsea’s new co-owner Todd Boehly have also held discussions over a deal for Zinchenko this summer.

Zinchenko would be viewed as a direct replacement for Marcos Alonso, who is pushing to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.

The Ukraine international, who has also been linked with a move to Arsenal, started just 10 games in the Premier League last season.

City, who completed a deal for Erling Haaland earlier this month, are also poised to sell Gabriel Jesus to Arsenal.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have also reportedly offered a contract to Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele, who will become a free agent by the end of the week.

Barcelona met with Dembele’s agent on Monday but the Spanish club are only offering a new deal on reduced terms.

Tuchel highly regards Dembele following their time together at Borussia Dortmund before the winger’s switch to Camp Nou.
