Chelsea interested in signing Sergio Aguero

Chelsea believe Aguero could be open to a move following the intense competition he is facing from Gabriel Jesus who is obviously a favourite of Pep Guardiola.

Sergio Aguero speaks to Manchester city, July 2011.

However, there is now some support for Manu Sainz's claim, with Sky Sports reporting that Chelsea do in fact have a "serious and strong interest" in signing Kun.

The Blues were linked with a bid to sign Romelu Lukaku from Everton this summer but a move failed to materialise before the Belgian forward ended up signing for Manchester United last week. That surprise came just weeks after Conte told Diego Costa, the club's top scorer last season, that he would not be in his plans at Chelsea in the future.

Antonio Conte is searching for a new striker after telling Spain global Diego Costa earlier in the summer that he was free to leave the club.

He has scored 169 times for City in six years, winning two Premier League titles in 2012 and 2014.

While a lot of water has passed under the bridge since Aguero made this statement, there is absolutely no doubting the potency that the little Argentinian would bring to Jurgen Klopp's front line. "It has never been in doubt".

At a crucial stage of City's development, going into the second season of Guardiola's management, City are extremely reluctant to provide a rival team, especially one in the Premier League, with a world class striker like Aguero. "It has never been in doubt".
