The Blues have been keeping very close tabs on the 20-year-old Congolese stopper over the past few months.
The reports coming back to Jose Mourinho are understood to have been glowing and now a summer move is looking more and more realistic.
Aubey has four years left on his current deal in The Pink City - but he admits Chelsea are a huge club who cannot be ignored.
"I am under contract with Toulouse until 2009 and I am fine in that club," said Aubey.
"But it all depends on the offers - my chairman has not closed the door.
"If a rich club shows interest, I will think about it. However I would like to win something with Toulouse before leaving.
"Chelsea has made no offer, but I don't know if I can talk about it, it is too early.
"If the contacts would become more serious I will think about it seriously. Chelsea is a great club.
"I would be a liar to say I am not attracted. I know it is early for me as I have only played 60 matches in Ligue 1 and a lot of players have failed.
"I think it will be clearer in May, but I don't ask for anything."
Aubey also admits that he would be tempted by both Marseille and Paris Saint Germain.
"Those two great clubs make me dream," he added.
