Mercato OL: Chelsea interested in Rayan Cherki

While OL have made an offer to Chelsea for Christian Pulisic, the Blues could make a move for Rayan Cherki, according to the English press.

John Textor's OL are dreaming of signing Chelsea's American winger Christian Pulisic, and on Sunday submitted a €25m offer to the Blues. A very attractive offer, given that AC Milan, who have already agreed terms with the 24-year-old, have so far only offered the Blues €14m.

IF the outcome of the Pulisic deal is not yet known, English media outlet The Guardian reveals that Chelsea could be looking to add more creativity to their squad by recruiting Rayan Cherki, who enjoyed a fine second half of the season with OL and an interesting U-21 Euro on a personal level.

Aged 19 and under contract at OL until 2025, Cherki is valued at 30 million euros by Transfermarkt, but it's possible that Lyon will demand more for their promising youngster, who was also linked with PSG last winter. Rayan Cherki will soon be represented by Kylian Mbappé's mother.
