Sergio Aguero is aware of interest from Chelsea and would be tempted in joining them to help boost his Premier League goal tally, according to the Evening Standard.
Aguero is hot property after declaring he would be leaving Manchester City at the end of this season.
He will become a free agent in May and there will be no shortage of attentive suitors who want the Argentine in their squad.
Of course, the 32-year-old won’t actually be able to leave for no expense.
His current £250,000-per-week (Evening Standard) rate with City limits the clubs who could actually afford these wages.
Chelsea are probably the only English side to have that kind of financial backing, as they continue their hunt for a new striker.
Signing Aguero would certainly have Frank Lampard’s blessing, having once told Sky Sports that the devasting forward was ‘different class’.
Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain have also set their sights on luring City’s all-time top scorer away from England
However, Aguero’s desire to move up the Premier League scoring ladder makes Chelsea a more exciting prospect.
With 181 goals, he is fourth in the list of leading marksmen, just six behind Andrew Cole in third.
Switching to Stamford Bridge would certainly boost his chances of overtaking the Manchester United legend and close the gap on another in Wayne Rooney.
