Chelsea are looking for a top striker to sign next summer and the Blues targeted to 24-year-old forwards to revamp their squad: Romelu Lukaku and Alvaro Morata.
Antonio Conte is keen on Real Madrid‘s striker, that he already signed in summer 2014 for Juventus but didn’t have the chance to coach since he left the Bianconeri during the pre-season.
The Spaniard is not a regular starter under Zinedine Zidane but it won’t be easy to convince Real Madrid to sell him, since the Merengues signed him back from Juventus last summer after he improved his playing during the two seasons he spent in Italy.
But Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo would like to re-sign Everton star Romelu Lukaku, and among the reason to put the Belgian player under contract again there is the fact that Emenalo wants to prove José Mourinho wrong.
It was the Portuguese manager, in fact, that allowed Lukaku to permanently join Everton in summer 2014, with the Toffees that paid £28m to bring him to Goodison Park.
The Nigerian director was the man who alerted Chelsea to Lukaku when the Belgian was at Anderlecht, and is ‘determined’ to be proven right about the striker.
