Manchester City star Raheem Sterling is set to sign for Chelsea this summer.

The 27-year-old is close to sealing a deal with the Blues, and he is expected to be Chelsea’s first signing of the summer.

According to reports, Sterling is preparing to leave City for Chelsea this summer, and the Manchester City attacker  has already put his house up for sale.

The Mirror claims Sterling appears to be planning for life after Man City and is negotiating to sell his £4.5million house to Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Sterling has been identified as Tuchel’s primary target in attack, and Chelsea are believed to be open to offers for both Christian Pulisic and Ziyech.

According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea are now increasingly confident of securing a deal with AC Milan to sign up Hakim Ziyech.

Multiple sources claim Hakim Ziyech wants to leave Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel is ‘open’ to letting him go.

The Milan club has offered Chelsea €5m for a year loan deal, plus €20m to make the transfer permanent next summer.

Ziyech joined Chelsea from Ajax two years ago for a fee of around £35m as part of Frank Lampard’s signing, but has been unable to get a consistent run of games under Thomas Tuchel.

The Moroccan has made 46 Premier League appearances in his two seasons at the club, scoring six goals in that time.

For Thomas Tuchel, he’s keen on refreshing his attacking options ahead of next season, and sees Sterling as a viable option.
