Chelsea are planning to spend big in the summer to maintain their place as Premier League table-toppers – and have Arsenal and Everton stars in their sights.
Boss Antonio Conte is rumoured to be planning bids for Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, according to the Daily Mirror.
Chelsea’s bosses are preparing to let Conte spend big in order to ward off interest in him from Italian side Inter Milan. However, Conte has not expressed any interest in leaving London.
Sanchez has been rumoured to be unsettled at Arsenal, and if the club do not get into the Champions League, he could be tempted by a move across London. However, he is likely to cost more than £50 million, and the Gooners would be loathe to lose one of their stars to a rival club.
Meanwhile Lukaku is attracting interest from a number of clubs – including Manchester United – and could cost up to £80 million.
However, Lukaku is a former Chelsea player, and the lure of returning to his old stomping ground could help sway his decision.
Conte has also been linked with a bid for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, who could cost £65 million.
Looks like it is going to be a busy summer in this part of London…
