Chelsea open talks to make striker Antonio Conte’s first signing – report

Chelsea are keen on re-signing Romelu Lukaku this summer, according to reports

Chelsea have held talks with Romelu Lukaku’s agent about the possibility of re-signing the striker from Everton this summer, according to reports.

The Blues have been linked with a host of players but are yet to make any signings since Antonio Conte’s appointment as the club’s new manager.

Conte is currently on duty with Italy at Euro 2016 but is believed to be working hard behind the scenes as he prepares for his first season in charge at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are thought to be on the lookout for attacking reinforcements as they prepare to try and bounce back from their disastrous campaign last term.

Now, Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli is reporting that Conte has held talks with Lukaku’s agent Raiola about the possibility of bringing the striker back to Stamford Bridge this summer.
