Romelu Lukaku has been on Chelsea’s radar since last season. Everton refused to sell the Belgian star to Chelsea last season and Chelsea are still hot on his trail with reports claiming that Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo is favouring the 23-year-old over Alvaro Morata.
According to Italian football journalist Massimo Marianella, the move is almost a done deal.
While speaking on Sky Sport Italia, Marianella said: “I think many big players will join Chelsea in the summer as Conte wants the Blues to become credible contenders for the Champions League win.
“I can say Lukaku’s Chelsea move is almost done deal and reports in England claim Alexis Sanchez will also play for Chelsea next season.
“Many other players could also arrive [at Chelsea].”
If Chelsea sign Lukaku, it’ll be a return home for the young striker who made ten appearances for Chelsea and failed to score in any one.
Chelsea signed Lukaku from Anderlecht in 2011 but was then loaned out to West Brom and then Everton, before his loan move to Everton was made permanent.
