Chelsea eyeing a striker
One of the main priorities for the summer transfer window has seemingly been the edition of a centre-forward.
The Blues’ main issue during 2020/21 was their lack of goals, with Jorginho finishing the Premier League campaign as their top scorer on just seven goals.
The capital outfit do look to have been attempting to address this issue, with it previously stated that signing a striker was their overriding priority this summer.
Two of the main names to have been linked so far have been Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku to Chelsea?
But with the Premier League season now less than two weeks away, the Blues are still yet to sign a new no.9.
However, a deal for Lukaku this summer does not seem to be out of the question just yet.
The Athletic penned a story on Monday covering Chelsea’s pursuit of the Belgian, in which they claim the Londoners have already made two bids for him this summer.
And whilst those bids have seemingly been knocked back, Chelsea have not given up hope of signing their former striker in the next month:
The indications at the moment are that Chelsea haven’t given up, even though itâ??s clearly a deal which will be difficult to complete at this late stage of the market.
