Recently, Chelsea have been linked with a move for Everton forward Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku is desperate to return to his former club where he claims he has unfinished business and the London Evening Standard reports that the Belgian international is ready to hand in a transfer request to force the move to Stamford Bridge this summer.

The Blues have had an offer rejected by Everton and even though they say they want nothing less than £75m, Antonio Conte is hoping that £67m will help persuade them to part ways with the 23-year-old.

Manchester City new boss Pep Guardiola spoke about the transfer window targets for his team and, when asked over Chelsea target John Stones, said: “Stones? He is an Everton player but everybody knows we will try to sign him.” 

It is understood the Citizens are leading the race to sign the Everton centre-back, who has been heavily linked also with a move to Chelsea and Manchester United.

Chelsea have made Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly their top target to strengthen the defense and have placed a £38m move to persuade the 25-year-old, according to SkySports.

It is understood Antonio Conte is a great admirer of the Frenchman, who has been repeatedly and heavily linked with a move to Everton earlier this week.

His agent also revealed that he won’t join Juventus, which has given a massive boost to Chelsea in their hopes of signing him this summer.

“I was in Dimaro [traditional location of Napoli’s pre-season training camp] on Saturday and we discussed a contract renewal.” Koulibaly’s agent said.

“However, we are not at the point of reaching an agreement. The desire of the player is to leave the club, not renew. We are told by the club that he is a great player, but from the renewal on offer, we don’t see this. Last year they wanted to sell him, stating he was not focused enough, but then he showed his quality.”

According to the Daily Mirror new Chelsea manager Antonio Conte asked two or three more signings to his boss Roman Abramovich.

The Blues have already invested € 63m ( £ 55m) on the market to sign Michy Batshuayi and N’Golo Kante, but the Italian coach met Abramovich and technical director Michael Emenalo during the pre-season tour in Austria and spoke to them also about their strategy in this transfer window, the Mirror reports.

Conte would have asked at least another striker, to choose between Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku, and another centre-back: Juventus’ Leornardo Bonucci, Roma’s Kostas Manolas and Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly are his favourites.

Chelsea have made a late bid for Zenit St. Petersburg midfielder Axel Witsel.

The Belgian international has been linked with a move away from Russia for quite some time now and a move to Merseyside this summer looked on the cards with both Liverpool and Everton showing interest.

However, Chelsea are ready to make an offer for Witsel and add him to the team that Conte is hoping will make waves in the Premier League next season.

Witsel is currently on holiday after competing in France this summer for Belgium but it is thought that he will want to make a decision regarding his future sooner rather than later.
