Chelsea are apparently set to bid for an extraordinary Premier League winger. In spite of possible Profit and Sustainability Rule breaking, the Blues remain in the market for the best players around. Will the west London outfit secure the latest promising star on their wishlist? Meanwhile, The Pride of London comment as CFC is again named one of richest clubs in existence. This is a really positive aspect of the fan base's hopes of one day returning to greatness.

Chelsea slip a place but are still one of the most wealthy clubs in world football

Chelsea Football Club are still a force to be reckoned with on paper. Yep, that's right. Securing European football was a key boost for the Blues' reputation and short-term capacity.

Although, Tottenham Hotspur are now valued more highly than CFC, sitting in eighth place on the rich list with their capital rivals in ninth. Yet the latter retain much pulling power. Chelsea's value is estimated at '$3.13 billion, or £2.46bn'. Spanish giants Real Madrid top the listing, with Manchester United coming in second. Barcelona, who are also based in Spain, came third.

Chelsea are ready to make an offer for £60 million-rated Michael Olise of Crystal Palace - report

Even without a manager, not to mention possibly breaking PSRs, the Blues will continue to try to acquire further high profile players. You have to kind of admire the audacity and sheer commitment of Todd Boehly, if literally nothing else. One standout EPL performer the west Londoners appear to have admired for sometime is Crystal Palace star Michael Olise.

Olise is one of those elite footballers who seem to glide as opposed to run: effortless panache. It feels as though the ball sticks to his foot like glue. Accompanied by a heaven-sent touch gifted from somewhere incomprehensible and special. Even when sending defenders in one direction and then another like a fully flying Ryan Giggs - the Hammersmith, London-born man remains totally composed.

If the talent we've seen Olise exhibit with the Eagles can translate to the next level, or two, he could be an ideal signing at the Bridge. The £60m price tag could end up as a steal for the Blues, if a deal does transpire.

The only bothersome element here, as usual, is that Boehly and Behdad Eghbali don't care if the subsequent manager rates the 22-year-old or not. Manchester United, Newcastle United, Arsenal and Liverpool might all rival the Blues for the wingman's signature.
