Chelsea are believed to have gone a step further in their bid to sign West Ham United striker Marko Amautovic.

Latest report reveals that the West London side have beaten rivals Manchester United for the footballer as they have held advance talks with him.

The Stamford Bridge side are keen on adding more options to the attack with their both strikers Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata not firing this season.

Both former Arsenal and Real Madrid Players have been inconsistent in their performances which have forced the club to be in search for new players.

Although, manager Maurizio Sarri is of the opinion that the both strikers should not be blamed so as not to mount pressure on them as he believes they will bounce back soon.

The Italian boss also praised the World Cup winner for his impact in the team explaining that he might not score goals but have been able to create chances for others to score.

However, the lastest report says Sarri is now ready to add more options with Marko Amautovic and he is willing to pay within the sum of £30 million.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are unbeaten so far this season and they sit second in the Premier league table with two points behind league leaders Manchester city.
