Chelsea eye third Manchester City star as Tuchel offers Sterling reassurances

Chelsea have been linked with a third Manchester City star this week, with it is reported that Oleksandr Zinchenko is of interest to the Blues.

Zinchenko has been on Manchester City’s books since back in 2016, but has only really become a regular feature for the Sky Blues in the last few campaigns.

He would feature 28 times for Manchester City during 2021/22, providing five assists along the way as City clinched yet another Premier League title.

However, with the summer transfer window now open, the future of the full-back, who is under contract at the Etihad until 2024, has been called into question.

Arsenal were the first side to be linked with Zinchenko, followed by fellow Premier League outfit West Ham.

Now, it appears a third Premier League side are interested in the Ukrainian.

It has been reported by the Daily Mail that Chelsea are considering making a move for Manchester City's Oleksandr Zinchenko this summer.

However, it is uncertain as to whether Chelsea would try to sign all three of Oleksandr Zinchenko, Nathan Ake and Raheem Sterling due to the likely expense involved in getting the trio:

At present, it appears as though Raheem Sterling is the most likely of the trio to make the switch to west London.

It was reported on Tuesday that a formal bid from Chelsea for Sterling is expected in the next 48 hours, whilst Tuchel has assured Sterling he will have a key role to play at Chelsea, which is major factor in England winger's decision ahead of the 2022 World Cup.
