Everton striker Romelu Lukaku remains Chelsea’s number one striking target and reports claim Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has assured the former Chelsea prodigy that he will be Chelsea’s firstchoice striker – that is according to Italian football journalist Emanuele Giulianelli.
Giulianelli also believes that Chelsea striker Diego Costa feels threatened by the impending arrival of the Belgium international, hence his decision to leave Stamford Bridge.
He tweeted: “What Diego Costa has revealed wasn’t a secret at all.
“Conte has explained to Lukaku that in his plans he would be the first choice.”
Lukaku has publicly claimed that he already has an agreement in place with his chosen club.
He said: “My agent knows what is going to happen and I know as well. I’m staying calm and we have an agreement with the club as well.
“We stay calm and at least we have a direction where we want to go. I want to take everything to another level and be better than I was last year.”
