Chelsea reportedly have 'concrete interest' in signing Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish during the summer transfer window.
The Blues are expected to pursue a number of high-profile additions having won the Champions League for the second time in their history.
According to Football Insider, Abramovich has made it known that he is prepared to meet Villa's asking price for the England international.
Chelsea are best placed to rival Manchester City for Grealish's services, something which may eventually cost in the region of £100m.
Despite not wanting to sell their best player, Villa are assessing their options in the transfer market on the back of having already signed Emiliano Buendia from Norwich City.
