Chelsea Football Club are prepared to storm the transfer market this summer, with the Blues targeting the signing of a huge world-class star in order to significantly increase the consistency of Thomas Tuchel's squad and close the gap on Manchester City.
According to today's news, Chelsea are prepared to make a concrete £86 million bid to complete the signing of Romelu Lukaku during the summer transfer window, as he is expected to become the club's primary priority if they struggle to sign Erling Haaland this summer.
Chelsea have named former striker Romelu Lukaku as a top striker transfer option, as they are likely to lose out on signing Erling Haaland due to the player's massive contract demands. Romelu Lukaku has been linked with a move away from Inter Milan, as the Italian club is facing financial difficulties as a result of the pandemic's effect and may be forced to sell him in the summer in order to raise additional funds and comply with FFP regulations.
Romelu Lukaku, 27, has established himself as one of Europe's best strikers following his outstanding and scintillating goalscoring record for Inter Milan since joining from Manchester United. The Belgian international striker is on the verge of leading Inter Milan to their first League title in ten years, having scored 61 goals and provided 14 assists in 88 appearances since joining the club. Additionally, Lukaku has 27 goals in all competitions this season as Inter Milan battle for the Serie A crown.
Chelsea are looking to sign a prolific striker this summer as Thomas Tuchel appears to lack confidence in the likes of Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham. Romelu Lukaku has emerged as a likely major transfer target as Chelsea are very likely to miss out on the signing of Erling Haaland. Lukaku brings huge goalscoring ability to Chelsea, and the former Chelsea attacker is the sort of striker the Blues need to close the gap on Manchester City and challenge them.
Chelsea would, however, have to pay a fee of about €83 million to complete the signing of Lukaku, as the striker is expected to command a high transfer fee if he returns to Stamford Bridge this summer. Lukaku is a world-class forward, and his remarkable goalscoring ratio would be a significant addition to Chelsea if they are able to reach an agreement with Inter Milan and the player's representatives this summer.
Additionally, Chelsea will try the signing of Erling Haaland, who is Thomas Tuchel's preferred option to lead the line, but the Blues will prioritize a move for Lukaku if they are unable to sign the Dortmund striker. Additionally, Chelsea is interested in signing a defender this summer, and the Blues seem to be on track for another summer of massive transfer spending in order to create a squad capable of dominating the league in the coming years.
