Luka Modric has admitted he would like a move from Tottenham, and has his sights set on Chelsea as his next destination.
The Blues will have to submit a bid of around £30m to persuade the Spurs to part with the Croatian striker—an increase of £8m from their previous offer.
Man-U and Man City have not entered bids because Modric has stated a desire to remain in London.
Modric played a huge role in Tottenham's success last year, but wants to play for a team regularly competing for both Premier League and Champions League titles.
The Blues have discussed the possibility of including Didier Drogba as a makeweight to sweeten the deal for Tottenham. Chelsea would love to acquire Modric and dump Drogba in one fell swoop.
