Chelsea’s hunt for a striker
Chelsea’s well-documented hunt for a striker led her to Erling Haaland and, after failing to agree on a deal with Borussia Dortmund, Romelu Lukaku.
Chelsea are preparing their new offer for Romelu Lukaku to be submitted this week. No official suggestions for Erling Haaland 🔵 #CFC
Koundé deal is still a priority for Chelsea – but no agreement on Zouma value.

The former Chelsea and Manchester United striker has had a brilliant season for Inter Milan, scoring 24 goals and preparing 10 more in 36 Serie A games. He also scored 4 out of 5 for his country at Euro 2020 and is in his prime at 28.
Lukaku has reportedly asked Inter to accept a reasonable offer from Chelsea as the Belgian looks to prove himself again in the Premier League.

There have been protests from Inter fans against a possible sale, but whether that will affect the deal at all remains to be seen. It looks positive for Chelsea fans.
