Chelsea eyes a striker
One of the top priorities for the summer transfer window appears to have been the release of a center forward.
The main problem for the Blues in the 2020-21 season was the lack of goals, with Jorginho ending the Premier League season as the top scorer with just seven goals.
The capital city team appear to have been trying to address this issue, having previously stated that signing a striker this summer was their top priority.
Two of the most important names that have been linked so far were Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku to Chelsea?
But with the Premier League season now less than two weeks away, the Blues have yet to sign a new No. 9.
A deal for Lukaku this summer doesn’t seem to be ruled out yet.
The Athletic on Monday wrote a story about Chelsea’s persecution of the Belgian claiming Londoners had already made two offers for him this summer.
And while those offers have apparently been turned down, Chelsea haven’t given up hope of signing their former striker next month:
The signs currently suggest that Chelsea have not given up, although it is clearly a deal that will be difficult to close at this late stage in the market.
