Chelsea have had a mixed summer transfer window after their hefty exodus looked to leave them light on numbers but they’ve enjoyed another fruitful sprending spree. An impressive nine new recruits have arrived through the door, including the record fee splashed on Moisés Caicedo and the Roméo Lavia snub from under Liverpool’s noses.
There’s still time for deals to be completed before the transfer window shuts — both in and out of the club. So here’s a look at some of the latest transfer headlines for Chelsea.
Chelsea ‘open’ for Lukaku move
The Chelsea and Romelu Lukaku dilemma continues as the Belgian striker’s permanent future remains up in the air. However, he could be set for a temporary move this summer as Fabrizio Romano reports that Roma have made contact over bringing him in for the season.
‘Chelsea are open’ to signing off on a loan move until June, and the fee and salary coverage are due to be discussed between the two clubs ‘ahead of Lukaku’s decision.’
The 30-year-old, who initially signed for Chelsea for £97.5 million but is now valued at £34 million, spent last season on loan with Inter Milan and has been heavily linked to an exit from the London side.
Thomas Tuchel considering Blues raid
Former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is eyeing up his old club as he looks to further bolster his squad this summer. Bayern Munich have already visited the Premier League to snap up Harry Kane from Spurs, but the boss is also considering moving for a man he is very familiar with.
According to Sky reporter Florian Plettenberg, Trevoh Chalobah has appeared as a potential target for the Bundesliga giants before the window closes next week. He has been ‘discussed internally’ and reportedly ‘has the profile Bayern is looking for.’ Tuchel is a ‘big fan’ of Chalobah, having spent time working closely with him during his tenure at Stamford Bridge.
