The forward's agent was previously spotted in Spain holding talks with both FC Barcelona and Real Madrid over a potential transfer.
According to transfer expert and football journalist Kristof Terreur, as cited by the Daily Express, Chelsea have thrown their hat in the ring, and have been in talks with the Dortmund star's representatives over the possibility of a transfer ahead of next season.
It is believed that BVB's asking price stands at £154 million (R2.9 billion), a fee Blues owner Roman Abramovich is reportedly willing to pay.
The London club has identified the need for an out-an-out striker next term if they want to challenge on all fronts.
Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham are not guaranteed starters, while Timo Werner managed to score only six goals in 35 Premier League appearances in the past season.
