Chelsea are in pole position to secure the signing of Manchester City and England forward Raheem Sterling this summer, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Although the Blues are still without a first-team addition this transfer window, the 27-year-old forward has been mentioned in connection with a move all summer.
Romano has previously stated that Raheem Sterling is thrilled to be moving to Stamford Bridge and that Chelsea and City aim to reach an agreement on his transfer.

Following Romelu Lukaku‘s dismal season, Thomas Tuchel‘s team is looking for a forward after the £97.5 million signing from last summer returned to Inter Milan on a season-long loan.
