Sergio Aguero Transfer Reportedly Interests Chelsea After Missing Romelu Lukaku

Chelsea are plotting a £60m bid for Manchester City hitman Sergio Aguero

Chelsea are plotting a £60m bid for Manchester City hitman Sergio Aguero

And, has continued on Monday as Sky Sports have "serious & strong interest" in Sergio Aguero.

The Blues were linked with a bid to sign Romelu Lukaku from Everton this summer but a move failed to materialise before the Belgian forward ended up signing for Manchester United last week.

The Blues will try to sign a striker this summer to replace Diego Costa, who has been told he is not in Antonio Conte's plans for next season.

And the 29-year-old was part of the squad that flew out to the U.S. on the club's pre-season tour on Monday.

Scoring an impressive 169 goals in 253 games for City since 2011, Aguero has been one of the most prolific strikers in English football over the last decade.

City and Pep Guardiola have always said that Aguero will stay at City, but the questions about Aguero's future have only increased this summer as City continue to pursue a deal for Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez. There's never been a doubt about that.

'Sergio Aguero is one of the best players in the world. We are a team that aspires to win every competition we compete in.

According to The Daily Star, as per Spanish journalist Manu Sainz who works for AS and Cadena SER amongst others, Pep Guardiola has given his permission to allow the Argentine striker to move to their Premier League rivals in a shock move.

"My information is they do not want to sell Sergio Aguero".

Aguero still has three years remaining on his current contract and City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak has previously waved away speculation over the striker's future.
