Chelsea could reportedly see US billionaire Todd Boehly launch a new bid to achieve a takeover of the club, and is told to value the Blues at £3bn.

According to The Telegraph, the American financier, who is told to be worth nearly £5bn, has made Frank Lampard’s side his top target as he looks to invest in a football club, but it’s noted that Roman Abramovich has required that the London giants are not for sale.

Though, the report goes on to suggest that hasn’t put the LA Dodgers part-owner off as he has also had an offer declined already, and so it remains to be observed whether or not he chooses to submit an official bid to take Chelsea off Roman Abramovich, and in turn if it’s enough to persuade him to sell.

The Russian tycoon made his own takeover of the Blues back in 2003 and has overseen a great period in the club’s history.

Time will tell if he wants to continue to add to those successes, but given he has already refused a string of reported offers in recent times, it doesn’t seem as though he has any interest in walking away from the Blues at this moment in time.

That said, Todd Boehly doesn’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon, and so it continues to be seen if a second touted offer results in a breakthrough moving forward.
