Chelsea’s top three transfer targets this summer revealed – report
Chelsea are looking to conclude deals to sign Tiemoue Bakayoko, Alex Sandro and Romelu Lukaku this summer
Chelsea want to sign Tiemoue Bakayoko, Alex Sandro and Romelu Lukaku as their main transfer priorities this summer, according to reports.
Sky Sports News HQ is reporting that the Blues are in talks to sign both Monaco midfielder Bakayoko and Juventus full-back Sandro as Antonio Conte looks to kick off his summer recruitment drive.
The same story claims, as has widely been reported this summer, that Chelsea are keen to sign Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, three years after he was sold to the Toffees by the west London outfit.
The article states that Monaco currently value Bakayoko at around €40m (£35m), while Juventus have priced Sandro at more than £50m.
Being the Premier League champions, Chelsea have inevitably been linked with a host of players this summer, but the Blues are yet to officially confirm the capture of any new stars.
Conte is naturally likely to be keen to significantly bolster his squad this summer as he prepares his team for a return to the Champions League next season and the increase in fixtures that will bring.
The Italian led the Blues to the Premier League title in his first season in charge at the club but watched his side be beaten 2-1 by Arsenal in the FA Cup final.
