Chelsea are leading the race to sign £40m-rated Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero according to reports today.

Interest is also being shown by former Blues boss Jose Mourinho, who is considering a move to bring the Argentine international to Inter Milan.

Yet Chelsea have been given the go-ahead by owner Roman Abramovich to make a big money offer, with Stamford Bridge officials allegedly set to meet Ageuro's agents in the next few days.

Chelsea are eager to wrap up a deal for the striker in the January window, with the possibility they could be banned from transfer activities in the summer following the Gael Kakuta affair.

Aguero has stated he wishes to see out the season at Atletico before any proposed move, but Chelsea believe they can change the 21-year-old's mind and beat Inter in the race for his signature.
