Chelsea are confident they have won the race to sign England star Raheem Sterling and are working on a £35m deal to sign the Manchester City forward.

The former Liverpool man is ready to leave Etihad after seven years at the club.

Sterling has 12 months to complete his existing contract and despite not submitting a transfer request, he has hinted to Pep Guardiola he is open to a new challenge.

The London-born winger is keen to return to the capital and Gianluca Di Marzio says Chelsea are now confident of completing a £35million deal.

With Romelu Lukaku set to return to Inter Milan, Thomas Tuchel has been handed plenty of money to invest in his front line and believes Sterling can play a more central role at Stamford Bridge.

Sterling lost his place as a regular starter at City last season but Guardiola was keen to keep it.

Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele is another name on Chelsea’s shortlist but it’s unclear whether a move for the Frenchman is independent of the Blues’ interest in Sterling.

Sterling’s arrival could be bad news for Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi, who could be put up for sale.
