Second Lukaku bid being readied
Chelsea have had a 100 million euro bid for Romelu Lukaku rejected by Inter Milan which also included the permanent transfer of Spanish international Marcus Alonso.
A second bid is expected from Chelsea as they push for a starting striker this summer to improve upon Timo Werner who has failed to impress as clinically as Thomas Tuchel would like.

Inter expect Chelsea to try again for Lukaku. He’s currently under contract until 2024 – €7.5m net per season.

Lukaku had previous stated his intention to stay in Italy but a big bid from Chelsea in combination with Inter’s financial situation could force a move.
Serie A teams after two Chelsea players
Firstly, Lazio are interested in bringing in England international Callum Hudson-Odoi this season.
A loan move for the player could be beneficial to guarantee regular game time which has been restricted at Stamford Bridge.

Secondly, Udinese want to bring in Armando Broja from Chelsea for the season. The player recently signed a contract extension with the Blue and could therefore leave knowing his future is secure.

Barca ‘fear’ Blues interest in Moriba
According to Spanish outlet Sport, Barcelona ‘fear’ that Chelsea could be the team to steal highly rated 18-year-old midfielder Ilaix Moriba from them this summer.
The player has failed to agree a deal with The Blaugrana so far and the London side could massively inflate his wages blowing the Catalans out the water.
Chelsea would be in a position to double or triple his card depending on whether he left now or next summer. There will be one last attempt because the club continues to believe that the player’s will is to stay at the Camp Nou.
