Chelsea owner Boehly fancies THREE Man City players - including Sterling

Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is to ask Manchester City for THREE first teamers - including Raheem Sterling.

Sterling is Boehly's top summer target, with the new Blues owner opening formal talks with City for the England star on Monday.

And the Daily Mail says he also plans to ask after Oleks Zinchenko and Nathan Ake from the champions.

Ake is a former Chelsea player and the Blues are targeting both the Dutchman and fullback Zinchenko as they face having to rebuild their back four. Toni Rudiger and Andreas Christensen have departed, with Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso also eager to be leave.

Boehly and manager Thomas Tuchel have discussed the possibility of signing the trio, though it could prove tough to persuade Pep Guardiola's side to strengthen one of their challengers by allowing all three to make the jump to Stamford Bridge.
