According to the Daily Mail, Ghanaian businessman Bernard Antwi Boasiako has confirmed he is eager to buy the London giants amid the ongoing crisis at Stamford Bridge. 

Last week, the UK government imposed major sanctions on Russian-Israeli oligarch Abramovich, who has been Chelsea's owner since 2003. 

His relationship, however, with Russian president Vladimir Putin has landed him and other mega-rich Russian businessmen in hot water in England, with the billionaire currently thought to be in the process of selling the club.

Rumours recently emerged that Boasiako, who made his billions being a goldmine owner, was exploring an offer for the Premier League giants due to his fond feelings towards the Blues. 

A spokesperson for the wealthy business has since appeared to confirm his interest: "Bernard Antwi Boasiako is exploring a potential offer for Chelsea. Discussions with various parties involved in the sale have taken place.

"Chelsea has a lasting legacy in Africa, players like Didier Drogba and Michael Essien are legends of the club; the opportunity to enhance the club's reputation in Africa is a very tempting prospect.

"Restoring stability and ensuring there are no job losses are among the priorities."

Below is where Abramovich currently ranks among the wealthiest Premier League club owners:
