Chelsea are considering a move for Serge Gnabry – after seemingly missing out on Raphinha.
The west London club, who are expected to add Manchester City pair Raheem Sterling and Nathan Ake to the ranks imminently, have fallen behind Barcelona in their pursuit of Leeds United’s Brazilian star, as Sportsmail revealed on Monday.
It is understood that they have made what have been described as ‘tentative’ enquiries over Bayern Munich winger Gnabry, who came through the ranks at Arsenal.

A number of other options are also being considered by new owner Todd Boehly, with the clock ticking down towards the new season.
No fee has been set for Germany international Gnabry, who failed to make the grade at the Emirates but who has developed into one of Europe’s finest attacking talents.
However, it is unlikely that anything less than £45m would tempt the German giants to sell.

Meanwhile, AC Milan have stepped up their interest in wantaway Hakim Ziyech. A meeting has been held and a move is expected. Chelsea would like the 29-year-old playmaker to leave on a permanent deal, while the Italians prefer a loan.
Ziyech wants to depart Stamford Bridge after announcing he was taking ‘full control of his professional future’.
Regardless, he is part of manager Thomas Tuchel’s group which is currently in Los Angeles on the first leg of Chelsea’s US tour.
