Chelsea are the latest club to consider a move for Toni Kroos should his contract wrangle with Bayern Munich rubble on, according to the Metro website.
Manchester United were heavily linked with a move for the Germany international in January, but nothing came close to materialising.
However, Bayern are prepared to offload the 24-year-old in the summer as the Bundesliga club are involved in a contract stand-off with the player.
According to reports that has sparked a scramble of interest from England, with Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and even Manchester City joining United on alert for Kroos.
Kroos has less than 18 months to run on his Bayern contract, but has told the club he wants to up his wages from £60,000-a-week to an astonishing £150,000-a-week.
