Chelsea are keeping tabs on AC Milan's Portuguese forward Rafael Leao, 90min understands.

The Blues are ready to allow Romelu Lukaku to leave the club this summer, while the long-term futures of Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic are also far from certain.

Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele is a prime target and the club are hopeful he will soon complete a Bosman free transfer, but manager Thomas Tuchel wants additional reinforcements to bolster his forward options.

90min has learned that one player Chelsea have been looking at is Leao, who was named Serie A’s Most Valuable Player after a fantastic individual season helped Milan overcome rivals Inter to win the title for the first time since 2011.

Leao finished the campaign with 14 goals and 10 assists, and although he often plays out wide, the 22-year-old is also capable of playing as a central striker.
