Chelsea striker Diego Costa was the subject of a big-money transfer offer from the Chinese Super League in January but Chelsea rejected the offer and kept the striker at Stamford Bridge.

According to The Sun, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is reportedly willing to cash in on Costa, who has scored 17 goals for Chelsea this season, in the summer if a big offer comes in for the striker.

According to the report, Conte will use the money from the sale of Costa to fund bids for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku and Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.

Lukaku is reportedly Chelsea’s key transfer target this summer and Conte is also keen on bringing Morata to Stamford Bridge after missing out on signing the player last summer.

Chelsea is ready to back Conte in the transfer market this summer with Chelsea set to return to the Champions League next season.
