Chelsea Italian manager  Antonio Conte is reportedly attempting to bring Manchester City talisman, Sergio Aguero to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea is searching for a new striker after Antonio Conte dumped Diego Costa by text and the Spanish who bang in 20 Premier League goals last season while the Premier League champions missed out to Manchester United for Everton forward Romelu Lukaku.

Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been strongly linked with a move to the Blues, while Italy international Andrea Belotti has also been linked with the Premier League Champion and they are finding things tough in their pursuit of Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.

According to AS, the London outfit has made Aguero their number one target in this summer's transfer window.

Aguero scored 30 times in all competitions for Cityzen last season, but the 29-year-old's future at the club was thrown into question following the arrival of Gabriel Jesus in January, with the Brazilian displacing the experienced forward in the team.

The Argentine international has scored 169 goals in 253 appearances for Manchester  City following a 2011 move from Spanish side they Atletico Madrid.

 Last month, Aguero's agent Hernan Reguera insisted that his client "is happy" at the Etihad Stadium.
