Chelsea Football Club are preparing an offer for Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
The European champions have lost Nicolas Anelka, Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou since January, and are in need of attacking reinforcements ahead of next season.
Fernando Torres has been told he will take centre stage from now on, but The Star claims Roberto Di Matteo also wants Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
The Holland ace is in the final 12 months of his deal at Schalke, for whom he scored 48 goals last term, and the Blues are willing to meet his £17million release clause.
