Chelsea could spend £174m on next two summer signings – report
Chelsea could be set to splash the cash on deals to sign Dele Alli and Romelu Lukaku this summer, say reports
Chelsea could be set to splash the cash on deals to try to sign Dele Alli and Romelu Lukaku this summer, according to reports in Spain.
Spanish outlet Don Balon is reporting that Antonio Conte is keen on deals for both Alli and Lukaku as the Chelsea boss prepares his team for their title defence next season.
The same report claims that both players could cost as much as €100m (£87m) each, meaning that together Chelsea could be forced to pay as much as £174m for the duo.
Chelsea are thought to be on the lookout for significant reinforcements this summer but the Blues have so far only concluded a deal to land goalkeeper Willy Caballero on a free transfer from Manchester City.
Lukaku has long been linked with a move back to Chelsea this summer but it seems that the Blues are struggling to settle on a fee with Everton for the striker, who left Stamford Bridge to sign for the Toffees three years ago.
A successful move for Alli would surely be seen as unlikely, given that the England international is one of Spurs’ prized assets and that the north London club would be reluctant to part company with the starlet.
