The French midfielder has emerged as one of the club's top transfer targets this summer but owner Roman Abramovich will have to part with £31million to prise him from the Bundesliga champions, says the Daily Mail.

Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon is believed to have already made contact with Bayern although a decision over Ribery's proposed switch to Stamford Bridge but a decision won't be made until France's participation at Euro 2008 is over.

Chelsea will now need to pay just over the £30.8m they spent on Andriy Shevchenko two seasons ago, but it's understood they are prepared to do it.
