Chelsea transfer news
The Ivory Coast international has been linked with top clubs in the past, and Chelsea are now joining the race for his signature as he seems set to move for the right price this January.
City want him for £25m, but Swansea are demanding £30m and there is a chance that this proposed deal will not come to fruition.
Chelsea would then be waiting in the wings to sign the prolific and powerful forward, who could be an ideal long-term replacement for Didier Drogba at Stamford Bridge.
