Chelsea tick two boxes for Sergio Aguero as he looks to decide where to go next after his contract at Manchester City expires in the summer. The Argentine is keen to make the 2022 World Cup squad for Argentina and wants to stay in the Premier League.

Chelsea are an attractive option for Aguero for two reasons as he makes a decision on his future this summer.

The Argentine will call time on a decade at the Etihad where he will go down as a club legend, leading them to several trophies including four Premier League titles.

With a fifth on the way, it has been decided that this will be Aguero’s final year at City – but it might not be his last in England.

Several clubs are interested in the 32-year-old, including Chelsea, Boca Juniors and a surprise offer from Leeds United.

But the Blues, who failed in signing him from Atletico Madrid back in 2011, are said to be leading the charge for the forward.

That is because Aguero is keen on staying in the Premier League, a competition he feels he can still play in despite his age, according to TYC Sports.

Another reason is that the Buenos Aires-born star has ambitions to make it into Argentina’s World Cup squad for 2022.

Aguero has 97 caps for his national side, scoring 41 times and is 13 behind second place in the top goalscorer for his country.

Gabriel Batistuta (54) and Lionel Messi (71) lead the race but the City striker still feels he can contribute while the Qatar World Cup would most likely be his last tournament for La Albiceleste.

Chelsea are also in the market for a striker, a position Thomas Tuchel wants to bolster with problems with his current crop.

Timo Werner has struggled up front but the German operates better on the left-hand side of Tuchel’s three up top system.

Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud have barely featured under the former Paris Saint-Germain manager, who arrived as a replacement for Frank Lampard in January.

With Giroud’s contract expiring at the end of the season and Abraham attracting the attention of several Premier League clubs, the Blues could be light in the striker department by next campaign.
