Chelsea are favourites to sign Sergio Aguero who recently announced he will be departing Man City after ten years at the Etihad, Daily Mail.

Barcelona have been lined up to sign the Argentine scoring legend as well as Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

On the other hand, the former Independiente forward may not want to disrespect City by playing for another Premier League side.

But Chelsea are determined to add more firepower into their team with the likes of Timo Werner not hitting the ground as expected since his summer arrival from RB Leipzig.

City are currently in the market for a new striker and Dortmund's Erling Haaland is now on their list as well as Frankfurt's Ander Silva and Inter Milan Lautaro Martinez.

Aguero's departure from City is understood to have upset the 31-year-old who demanded clarity on his future before he was told he will be released at the end of the season.

Aguero already has offers from a string of clubs which are eyeing his services, only days after it was confirmed he will be quitting City.

The Etihad-based outfit announced earlier in the week the lethal forward will be bidding them farewell once his contract with them expires.

However, Metro UK reports the 32-year-old will not be short of offers once the summer window opens.

Legit.ng also reported that Paris Saint Germain have reportedly jumped in the chase to sign free agent Sergio Aguero at the end of this season.

The Argentine has already confirmed he will leave the Etihad Stadium outfit this summer - ending his 10-year reign at the club.

His decision has alerted his admirers who are already planning to make a move for the prolific goals scorer once his deal expires.
