Fans feared the days of heavy spending at Stamford Bridge were over after Roman Abramovich sold up last year.

But American businessman Boehly showed he’s ready to invest by spending £270m on signings last summer.

Wesley Fofana, Marc Cucurella, Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang arrived to boost Chelsea’s first-team squad.

And there were plenty of signings to strengthen the youth sides too, with Carney Chukwuemeka and Cesare Casadei arriving for sizeable fees.

But Chelsea are ready to pay a bit more money in THREE instalments to secure a deal AND beat Financial Fair Play restrictions.

Should a deal fail to materialise, Chelsea are also thought to be interested in Alexis Mac Allister – although Brighton have made it clear they have no intention of selling.

Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham and West Ham’s Declan Rice are also on Chelsea’s list, but any move will have to wait until the summer.
