Chelsea are chasing Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos. The Daily Star says they are set to offer Kroos a bumper deal to make the switch to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are also willing to trump Real Madrid's contract offer to sign the Germany international.

Kroos is in the final year of his contract at Bayern and has rejected fresh terms to stay at the Allianz Arena.

Having secured the £27m addition of Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas last week, Jose Mourinho has turned his attentions to Kroos and will offer the Bayern star a £7m-a-year deal to join Chelsea.

Kroos was previously a target for Manchester United.
