Chelsea transfer news
In this article we will bring you all of today’s Chelsea transfer news. Make sure to check back to the site for more daily transfer updates throughout the summer.
Chelsea are growing in confidence when it comes to their chances of signing Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan this summer, with a bid of 100 million euros+ expected to be enough to convince the Italian side to part with their prize forward.
With Inter having already turned down a massive offer which also included Spanish defender Marcos Alonso, Lukaku is said to be ready to return to Stamford Bridge, should his team accept the latest offer from the Blues.
Lukaku would rejoin the Premier League having left Manchester United to make the move to Italy. He will certainly have a point to prove upon his return, after departing Chelsea for Everton at the beginning of his career.
Latest from Di Marzio on Lukaku posted on Instagram- in the past few days he has told Inter he wants to accept Chelsea’s offer which is an upgrade financially but also a better situation to win trophies
Inter have told their directors to maximize his sale

Kounde still wanted
Despite a massive potential outlay on Lukaku, Chelsea are still looking at bringing in Sevilla defender Jules Kounde.
The Spanish club have remained stern on their valuation of Kounde, with Kurt Zouma’s future still wrapped up in the saga.
Yet, Chelsea want to add the highly rated player to their ranks, to add some much-needed youth to an ageing defence.
Chelsea are preparing their new bid for Romelu Lukaku to be submitted this week. No official proposals for Erling Haaland 🔵 #CFC
Koundé deal still priority for Chelsea – but no agreement on Zouma value.
…and no agreement also for Zouma to West Ham, as of now. @JacobSteinberg

Abraham’s Italy move
With Lukaku incoming, the future of England international Tammy Abraham looks bleak in west London.
Both Arsenal and West Ham had been linked with a move for Abraham, but a new potential destination has emerged.
Italian side Atalanta appear to be in the driver’s seat when it comes to a deal, and could look to Abraham as a long-term replacement for Duvan Zapata.
Atalanta are a Champions League side consistently now, and are looking to mount their own challenge on the Serie A title next season.
Arsenal, Aston Villa and West Ham are interested in Abraham but Atalanta, unlike those other clubs, will be playing in the Champions League.
Abraham would like to play in Europe’s elite competition whilst Chelsea would prefer to sell him to a foreign club.
