Wilkins believes Modric would be a perfect addition to the Blues squad.
"Modric is a player of immense quality that everyone with finance would want to buy. His craft and work ethic are brilliant, " Wilkins said.
"He would fit in at Chelsea with no problem at all because he is a class player and he would be joining fellow class footballers.
"The consistency he has shown as a foreign player coming to the Premier League has been exceptional. He and (Manchester United's former goalkeeper Edwin) Van der Sar, were the best two players in the league last year."
