CHELSEA have offered Zlatan Ibrahimovic a two-year deal worth almost £20million to try and tempt the Swedish striker to Stamford Bridge.
According to French website FootMercato, the Blues have taken the first significant step in trying to bring the 34-year-old to the Premier League.
Interest from English clubs in Ibrahimovic is high with the Paris Saint-Germain striker out of contract in the summer.
After helping PSG to a fourth straight Ligue 1 title at the weekend, Ibrahimovic joked that he would stay in Paris next season if they replace the Eiffel Tower with a statue of him.
He said: “For the moment I will not be at PSG next season. I still have a month and a half here. “If they replace the Eiffel Tower with a statue of myself then I will stay at PSG, I promise.”
