Wilfried Bony will arrive in England to find a new club this week and Chelsea could open talks with the Vitesse Arnhem forward, according to Sky Sports.
The 24-year-old striker, who has just finished as top scorer in the Dutch top-flight with 31 goals for Vitesse, is widely expected to leave this summer and has been attracting attention from around Europe, with Chelsea among the clubs known to be keen.
The likes of Liverpool and West Ham have all also been linked with Bony in the past, while Russian giants Anzhi Makhachkala have already made at least one big-money offer for the Ivory Coast ace.
Now there are claims that Bony and his agent are set to travel to England this week to speak to several interested parties and attempt to hammer out a move to the Premier League.
It is thought Vitesse rate Bony at around £15million and will entertain offers for the talented front man, who has made it clear he wants to leave in search of a new challenge.
Chelsea will be in the hunt for at least one new attacker this summer, with Edinson Cavani and Andre Schurrle also known to be high on their wanted list.
