Chelsea quoted price for Croatian winger
Chelsea will have to table a fee of around £48m, if they are to prise away Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan during the summer transfer window.
Blues boss Antonio Conte is keen to bolster the club's ranks this summer as they seek to compete in both the domestic and European competitions next season.
Perisic has been on the radar of both Manchester United and Chelsea in recent weeks, but the former appear to be reluctant to match his asking price.
Jose Mourinho's side are looking at the possibility of offloading Anthony Martial first before moving in for a potential replacement.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have a surplus in their transfer kitty following the £60m sale of midfielder Oscar to Shanghai SIPG earlier in January.
As a result, the Premier League holders appear to hold an advantage in the winger's pursuit, but they will still have to come to terms with Inter's demands.
Inter Milan are hoping to balance their books with the sale of Perisic as they seek to comply with the Financial Fair Play regulations.
Perisic has netted 19 goals during his two-year spell with the former Serie A giants - including 10 across all competitions this term.
