Chelsea are stepping up their bid for FC Twente striker Marko Arnautovic.

Inter Milan had been regarded as favourites for the 20 year-old Austrian, who has been likened to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

However, De Telegraaf says Chelsea have made a serious push for Arnautovic, who actually favours a move to London ahead of Milan.

While Inter have hesitated over Twente's £18 million asking price, Chelsea have indicated they're prepared to meet the demand to land Arnautovic this summer.
