Erling Haaland, Harry Kane or Romelu Lukaku – Who ought to Chelsea signal this summer time? Comment beneath
Romelu Lukaku is one other title on the shortlist as Inter Milan’s monetary troubles proceed and proprietor Roman Abramovich is claimed to be eager on a reunion with the Belgian talisman who loved a 30-purpose season in Serie A with Antonio Conte’s title-successful facet.
Those players will not come on a budget, nonetheless, and promoting players is an effective approach to earn some further money to facilitate any potential deal.
