Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has reportedly taken action into his own hands to prepare him in the best way for life at Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel amid strong talk of a potential swoop being completed by Todd Boehly once Romelu Lukaku departs for Inter Milan.

It has taken a short while for Chelsea to get going in the summer transfer window following months of sanctions that prevented them making headway, but with Lukaku's situation seemingly heading towards a positive conclusion, attention is starting to finally switch towards incomings.

Although defence is the main priority in this summer's transfer window amid fresh updates on Jules Kounde and Man City's Nathan Ake, it is in fact another player from the current Premier League champions who could be joining Chelsea next season.

This is according to The Athletic , who report that confidence is growing between both parties that a deal can be completed in the near future which will see the player make the move that he hopes guarantees him more regular first-team football.

Sterling is set to enter the final year of his contract with City, and reports do vary on the potential cost to Chelsea, with estimates between £35million and £60million.

Regardless of what fee is to be agreed upon, it is looking clear now that Sterling will become one of the first signings of the Boehly era at Stamford Bridge, with Kounde and Ousmane Dembele also strongly linked.

Dembele is set to make his final decision about his future upon his return from holiday, despite speaking about his current situation with a Barca supporter in a recent encounter. His injury record was reportedly of concern to the higher-ups at Stamford Bridge if he was to be brought in.

Amidst the rumours that the 27-year-old's arrival could end any Dembele transfer hope, football.london understands that the Blues are planning to bring both aforementioned targets in to help refresh the attack.

Although no time frame has been given regarding when Marina Granovskaia wants to get this deal officially done and dusted before moving on to the next, Sterling has already done his part in planning ahead for the future.

In the same Athletic piece, it is reported that the England star has been reaching out to people in West London to get a gauge on what life is like at Chelsea after the new ownership saga came to an end in the latter stages of the 2021/22 campaign.

Additionally, he has apparently been talking to a few Blues players about Tuchel's management style and what he could expect to see if he arrives for the start of pre-season at Cobham in July.
