Chelsea have emerged as potential challengers to Manchester City to sign Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish this summer.
The England international had an injury-plagued 2020/21 season, but still impressed with seven goals and 12 assists from 27 games.
He has been identified as the top transfer target for City, and it has been claimed that he could cost as much as £100m.
It now appears that they could face competition. As per Fichajes.net, the Blues are among the favourites to sign the 25-year-old.
The Blues recently won the Champions League for the second time in their history, and they are expected to spend big this summer.
Instead of quantity, the focus could be on quality recruits. It remains to be seen whether they are serious interested in Grealish.
The Blues are loaded with midfield and attacking options, and they may look to offload few players to recoup transfer funds.
Hakim Ziyech has recently been tipped to leave the Blues, with Napoli and Juventus credited with an interest in his services.
