Chelsea has Now Accepted to Sign Ivorian Attacker as Raphinha's Alternative, Idolises Drogba

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is finding it hard to outshine the Spanish giants Barcelona in pursuit of Brazilian international Raphinha despite full agreement with his club over a potential switch to Stamford Bridge.

It's claimed that the 25 year old isn't ready to making a move to London and therefore waiting for a proposal from Barcelona who are preparing a final offer to his agent Deco.

As a result, the Germany tactician has listed several top targets to owner Todd Boehly who's as well closing in on signing Raheem Sterling from EPL rivals Manchester City.

According to Football London, Chelsea has now turned their attention to Ivorian and Burnley's winger Maxwel Cornet with Tuchel viewing him as a perfect and a cheaper alternative to Raphinha.

Corned is currently a free agent after Burnley relegation and therefore could be a smart sign for the Blues in the rebuild as other targets are being eyed.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are still considering to land Juventus ace Matthijs De Ligt alongside City's defender Nathan Ake with Hakim Ziyech tipped for a loan move to AC Milan.
