The 2000-2001 Serie A top scorer has emerged as a strong contender to join Roman Abramovich's Stamford Bridge revolution, despite earlier pledging his future to Inter.
The Argentinian international has now admitted he cannot completely discount the prospect of a switch to London.
"In the past year, president (Massimo) Moratti has wanted me, and offered me an important contract," he told Tuttosport. "But you can never say never.
"You only need to see what happened last summer. Until the last moment, I was convinced I was staying at Lazio."
Veron is being tipped to persuade his international colleague to join Chelsea, after settling in well at his new club, and scoring the opening goal in the impressive win over Liverpool at Anfield.
With the transfer deadline rapidly approaching, Chelsea look certain to continue their summer spending spree, with Crespo one of the names under consideration.
