Chelsea's search for new attacking players this summer could have a big impact on current squad members and their futures. The Blues are set to completely revamp their squad over the window as Thomas Tuchel looks to close the gap to Liverpool and Manchester City over the 2022/23 season.
To do that, Chelsea's attacking output needs to improve. On plenty of occasions last term, the Blues struggled to create many chances and when they did come around, they were perhaps missing the clinical edge.
That's why Chelsea are now being linked with a host of new attacking options. Richarlison and Raheem Sterling are both top targets for the Blues, football.london understands, with moves being considered for both attackers.
Tuchel is a big fan of Everton forward Richarlison and believes his physical attributes could make him an ideal fit for the side. Everton, though, will want north of £50million - with close to £75m being spoken about - for the 25-year-old Brazil international, who has also been linked with Tottenham.
Meanwhile, Sterling is another big target for the Blues. The England international has just 12 months remaining on his contract with Manchester City and is open to leaving in a bid for more regular game time.
Chelsea will be trying to land Sterling on a cut-price deal considering his contract situation with the Premier League champions. According to Sky Sports, 'a compromise of around £45m has been loosely floated', with Sterling managing talks over his future himself.
Tuchel already has plenty of options at his disposal and they all possess superb amounts of talent. However, a number of them struggled last term and have therefore been linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge over the coming weeks.
