Report: Chelsea make £70m bid for star striker


Chelsea are looking to spend big on Romelu Lukaku to snatch him from Everton. The deal is surely being finalized behind the curtains with very less limelight on it. Gazzetta World claims that Chelsea is all set to bring the 23-year-old Belgian with a splash of €70 million.

With the recent comments from Conte claiming that he is not sure about Diego Costa staying at the club, he has opened talks with Everton to sign Lukaku yet again after 2 seasons. “Don’t ask me about Costa’s future because I don’t know, at this time he is a Chelsea player,” said the Italian boss.

Conte is chasing all the attacking options available in transfer market, namely Alvaro Morata and PSG’s man Edison Cavani, but Chelsea’s Lukaku chase has remained behind the veil and limited to a possibility after Lukaku’s ‘unfinished business’ comments.

Conte will not mind selling Diego Costa because he can be almost sure regarding Lukaku’s arrival at Stamford Bridge.
