Chelsea would be willing to sell players including Tammy Abraham and Kepa Arrizabalaga in a bid to land Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur, ESPN reports.
However, the Blues fear their London rivals will not do business with them.
Other Premier League clubs like Manchester United and Manchester City are monitoring the situation, after Kane informed Spurs he wants to leave.
A deal to prise the 27-year-old will not be straightforward, as the England captain has three years left on his current contract.
Tottenham Chairman, Daniel Levy is also likely to demand a fee in the region of £150million.
Although, Levy may reluctantly sanction a move, he would prefer not to strengthen a domestic rival.
A fractious relationship between Chelsea and Spurs dates back to Levy’s reluctance to sanction a move for Luka Modric to Chelsea in 2011, despite the midfielder expressing his desire to join them.
Chelsea also beat Spurs to the signing of Willian.
However, the Stamford Bridge outfit are mindful that Levy would need to rebuild in the wake of Kane’s departure and believe Abraham and/or Kepa may offer some appeal.
