Chelsea could make star strikers Antonio Conte’s first summer signings – report

Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku are both being linked with transfers to Chelsea in the summer transfer window

Chelsea could make summer transfer bids to sign Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku in the summer transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

The London Evening Standard is reporting that the Blues have placed both Morata and Lukaku on their summer transfer wishlist as new Chelsea boss Antonio Conte turns his attentions towards the possibility of bolstering his strike-force in the summer.

The same report says that Chelsea boss Conte is a huge admirer of Real Madrid striker Morata, having worked with the forward during their time together at Juventus.

It also claims that Morata likes the idea of moving to London with his fiancee Alice Campello.

The story also claims that Lukaku remains on Chelsea’s shopping list for the summer as Conte continues to think about potential recruits ahead of next season.

Chelsea should have no problem attracting some of Europe’s top players in the summer given their status as the Premier League’s top performing club so far this season.
