Raheem Sterling has routinely reached double digits in goals since the 2017–18 season. He has 131 goals in 337 games for Manchester City overall, so he would undoubtedly provide Chelsea with a much-needed threat.
In recent weeks, Sterling has been firmly connected with a move to the Blues, and according to the Daily Mail, there is growing optimism that the attacker will join Stamford Bridge this summer.
According to the publication, Sterling will sign a four-year contract with Chelsea, and a £45 million agreement is now close to being reached after recent days of intense negotiation between all sides.
As per the Daily Mail, Sterling has held positive talks with Thomas Tuchel over how he’d fit into the Chelsea boss’s plans, and the 27-year-old is now keen to seal a move to West London.
His minutes on the pitch have progressively regressed. Therefore, he has not committed his long-term future with the Sky Blues, with his contract expiring next summer.
