The Telegraph report that Chelsea are set to pay a fee in the region of £45million for the England international.
Sterling will overtake N’Golo Kante to become Chelsea’s highest-earning player with his £300,000-a-week deal.
It is understood that talks between Chelsea and City will be completed within the next 24 hours.
Chelsea are hoping Sterling can fly to Los Angeles with his new team-mates on Saturday for the start of their pre-season tour.
The Telegraph reports that Sterling was “impressed” by Tuchel’s plans and talks between the two have been “constructive”.
Sterling asked to leave City in May to secure more playing time ahead of England’s World Cup campaign in Qatar later this year.
The 27-year-old scored 13 Premier League goals last season and started 23 games. In the Champions League, he only started in five of City’s 12 games in the competition.
Sterling has won nine trophies during his time at City, including four Premier League titles.
Chelsea, meanwhile, are looking to follow Sterling’s arrival and sign two new defenders.
The club have been in talks with Juventus to sign Matthijs de Ligt but the Netherlands international prefers to join Bayern Munich, who took part in the race.
Chelsea could also miss out on Raphinha as the Leeds United winger remains awaiting a move to Barcelona.
