Chelsea owner Boehly determined to land Sterling AND Raphinha

Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is eager to sign Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling AND Leeds United ace Raphinha.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel regards Sterling highly, and the 27-year-old is keen on discussing a return to London, where much of his family still lives.

Leeds star Raphinha is another key target for Chelsea, although Barcelona remain interested in signing the Brazil international.

Sky Sports says Sterling and Raphinha are Chelsea's priority in the coming weeks, despite speculation linking the Blues with a move for unhappy Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo.

Chelsea's Champions League status could be appealing for Ronaldo, but Thomas Tuchel is mainly focused on Sterling and Raphinha as things stand.
