Chelsea’s owners and new manager Mauricio Pochettino have a lot to sort out in the coming weeks and months, especially once the transfer window officially opens very soon.
As well as selling a bulk of their current squad, Chelsea are thought to be looking to sign a new spine of their team bringing in another handful of new players to Stamford Bridge.
They most certainly need to sign a new striker, and there has yet to be any really solid information come out regarding potential striker targets. We are wondering whether that might be because Pochettino and the club would like to first speak with on loan Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku to see what he wants to do with his future before they go all out to sign a new striker themselves.
Lukaku’s priority is to stay at Inter, according to Fabrizio Romano in his latest tweet found below. But Chelsea have scheduled talks with Inter regarding this after the Champions League final, and you’d suspect that is when they will also be sitting down with the player himself as well.
