Before the season began, Chelsea were discussed as top-four contenders rather than Premier League title challengers.
Under Antonio Conte last season, the club failed to earn a Champions League spot, leaving new manager Maurizio Sarri with a big job on his hands.
With the season five games in, expectations have been raised as the club currently sit at the top of the standings after winning all of their league matches.
Summer signings Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic have made an impact, but there is one player at a rival club that could spark the Blues’ attention.
According to a recent report in The Guardian, contract talks between Manchester City and Raheem Sterling have reached a stumbling block.
It is believed that the England international’s wage demands are the issue, and given that the winger’s contract expires at the end of next season, other clubs may be keeping a close eye on the situation.
Should Chelsea, too?
