Chelsea hold talks with Manchester City for Raheem Sterling

Sterling joined the City from Liverpool for £49m in 2015 on a 7-year-contract 

English football club Chelsea are preparing to make a move to sign England forward Raheem Sterling from Manchester City.

The 27-year-old forward has already held discussions with Chelsea Manager Thomas Tuchel and is a key target for the Blues. New club owner Todd Boehly has already contacted City with a view of finalising the deal as quickly as possible.

With Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku expected to join Inter Milan on a season-long loan, Sterling could be the first major signing by Boehly.

Sterling, who joined from Liverpool back in 2015, has netted 131 goals in 339 games for City. In fact, he has scored 120 goals for the Cityzens under Pep Guardiola, and only Sergio Aguero (124) has scored more goals for the club since the Spaniard's arrival in Manchester in 2016.

Other than Raheem Sterling, City's Nathan Ake is also a key target for the London side.
