Chelsea are ready to spend over £200million to sign England World Cup stars Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice, according to The Telegraph.
Chelsea owner Todd Boehly was reportedly in attendance as the pair impressed in England’s World Cup opener against Iran in Qatar on Monday.
Both England internationals are likely to cost in excess of £100m each, but Chelsea are expected to launch moves for both men.
Chelsea’s interest in Bellingham and Rice could mark the end of N’Golo Kante’s time at Stamford Bridge.
The French defensive midfielder has been a vital part of Chelsea’s side since joining from Leicester in 2016, making 262 appearances for the club.
Kante is in the final year of his contract and has been plagued by a series of injuries, with the 31-year-old looking increasingly likely to depart at the end of the campaign.
