    CHELSEA'S search for defensive reinforcements could see them shopping back at Inter Milan, according to reports. The Champions League winners brought in star striker Romelu Lukaku from Inter this summer in a blockbuster £97.5million deal. 2Milan Skriniar (left) and Alessandro Bastoni (right) both play at the heart of the Inter defenceCredit: Getty And now SportMediaSet claim the Belgian has told his new employers to take a look at Milan Skriniar and Alessandro Bastoni. The defensive duo are key cogs in the Inter machine and the Italian champions are thought to be unwilling to sell. But with Kurt Zouma moving to West Ham and 36-year-old Thiago Silva not getting any younger, Chelsea will be looking to strengthen in defence when the transfer window reopens in January. Skriniar is a no-nonsense centre-back talked of as the heir to former Slovakia captain and compatriot Martin Skrtel. Left-footed Bastoni also plays in the centre of defence but can fill-in at fullback where he started his career. The 22-year-old is one of Italy’s brightest young stars and his confidence on the ball would work well...

    CHELSEA have agreed a £97.5million deal for Romelu Lukaku - after they refused Inter Milan’s demands to break the British transfer record. The Blues finally settled on the cash-only price for the striker after holding firm and refusing to cough up a further five million Euros - around £4.2m. 1Chelsea have agreed a £97.5m deal for Romelu Lukaku after refusing to agree to the initial £101.7m demands from Inter MilanCredit: Getty That would have taken the price for Lukaku up to £101.7m, which would have surpassed the record £100m Manchester City splashed out on Jack Grealish last week. But the two clubs eventually reached an agreement after a week of haggling. Chelsea are hopeful of announcing the return of the Belgian on Monday. Lukaku has agreed a £200,000-a-week contract to make the switch back to Stamford Bridge for the second time in his career. The Belgian had previously been on the books of the Blues between 2011 and 2014, between the ages of 18 and 21. There is a slim hope the deal will be done and Lukaku in England in...
    CHELSEA have made two bids for Romelu Lukaku this summer, according to reports. And although a deal is likely to be difficult to get over the line this close to the transfer deadline, the Blues are said to be the only Premier League team the 28-year-old would join. 2Chelsea have made two bids for Inter Milan striker Romelu LukakuCredit: Getty With less than three weeks to go until the West Londoners' season opener against Arsenal, it is still almost impossible to predict who will start up front. Timo Werner received mixed reviews last season and missed a few notable sitters. Olivier Giroud has left for AC Milan and Tammy Abraham is being heavily linked with a move to West Ham or Arsenal. Chelsea's No 1 target is Erling Haaland, 21. But Borussia Dortmund seem determined to keep him for one more season and last week, the Norwegian also hinted he would be staying for the 2021-22 campaign. As a result, the Blues have shifted their focus to their former striker Lukaku, according to the Athletic. Chelsea are said to...
    CHELSEA are prepared to let Tammy Abraham join Arsenal on loan to speed through a deal. The Gunners are emerging as the favourites in the three-way chase for the out-of-favour striker. 2Arsenal are tipped to win a huge tussle to sign Chelsea's England frontman Tammy Abraham, initially on loanCredit: Reuters Arsenal’s London rivals Tottenham and West Ham are also keen to sign the England star who has failed to win over new Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel. Chelsea are demanding around £40million for Abraham but the fee is proving a sticking point for any suitors. A loan deal with an obligation to buy should the player reach a pre-set amount of appearances look like being an ideal compromise. It would also take Abraham’s wages of around £80,000 a week off the wage bill to help with financing plans in other areas of the squad. Chelsea’s striker situation is a dilemma for Tuchel as he plots to build on last season’s incredible success. Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland is wanted by every top club in Europe but is 99 per cent set to...
    ROMA are interested in Chelsea wing-back Emerson Palmieri, according to reports. The Italian hardly featured for the Blues last season under Frank Lampard or Thomas Tuchel. 3Emerson could leave Stamford Bridge this summerCredit: AP But his stock remains high in his home country, especially after he helped Roberto Mancini's Azzurri side win Euro 2020. Napoli have been most heavily linked with the 26-year-old this summer. But according to Calcio Mercato, Roma could try to re-sign him. Emerson played in the Italian capital for three years between 2015 and 2018, before joining the Blues for an initial £17.6million. His spell at Stamford Bridge has been chaotic, playing under four managers in West London. He has made 70 appearances for the club, with only two coming in the Premier League last term. But he will not leave Chelsea empty handed, having picked up Europa League and Champions League winners' medals during his time with the club. Emerson stepped in for the injured Leonardo Spinazzola for Italy at Euro 2020, after the Roma star suffered a snapped Achilles tendon. 3The 26-year-old helped Italy...
    CHELSEA want to keep Marcos Alonso 'at all costs', according to reports. The Spanish wing-back is on Barcelona and Inter Milan's shopping lists. 3Marcos Alonso could stay at Chelsea this summerCredit: Andy Hooper-The Daily Mail But according to Mundo Deportivo, the Blues are keen to retain his services for the season ahead. Barca are soon to be requiring a left-back, with Junior Firpo set for a move to Leeds United. And the Catalan giants have long admired Alonso. They tried to sign him in January, and reportedly even reached an agreement with the player himself, who had been out in the cold in West London at the time. But following Frank Lampard's dismissal, replacement Thomas Tuchel brought Alonso back into the fold. And the German values the 30-year-old as an important squad player. The report even states that Tuchel feels that Alonso is versatile, and could play on the left of his back three if required. Jordi Alba has long been Barcelona's undisputed first-choice left-back. 3Alonso was brought back into the fold by Thomas TuchelCredit: Reuters ⚽ BETTING SPECIAL ⚽...
    ROMELU LUKAKU has described his hapless spell at Chelsea as a "failure" amid reports suggesting he is targeted by his former club.

    ITALIAN champs Inter Milan are reportedly chasing Chelsea outcast Olivier Giroud this summer. But they could face Serie A competition from Lazio for the 34-year-old French striker. 2Olivier Giroud seems likely to leave Chelsea this summer after being frozen out by Thomas TuchelCredit: Getty Giroud is available on a free transfer, and it seems highly unlikely he will be sticking around at Stamford Bridge. His last Premier League start came on February 28 when he was subbed off on 65 minutes in a 0-0 draw against Manchester United. It was almost a month until his next start - but he lasted even less time on the pitch when he was hooked on 63 minutes in the 2-0 FA Cup win against Sheffield United. Giroud has then been on the bench for three Champions League games and the Premier League draw against Brighton as boss Thomas Tuchel looks to be planning for life without him. Calcio Mercato also reports that Turkish giants Fenerbahce are interested in the attacker, who hopes to be a part of France's Euro 2020 squad this summer....
    FORMER Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti believes Chelsea anchorman N'Golo Kante would make the newly-crowned Serie A winners "exceptional". Moratti claims the 30-year-old would match the legendary influence of 2009-10 Treble-winner Wesley Sneijder. 2French World Cup winner N'Golo Kante has been tipped as an ideal fit for InterCredit: Getty And he dreams of Inter's ex-Chelsea manager Antonio Conte reuniting with the French World Cup winner. But he admits it would be "hard" to sign a player who has battled back well under Blues' chief Thomas Tuchel following hamstring injuries.    Ex-Holland midfielder Sneijder arrived at Inter from Real Madrid to scoop Serie A, the Champions League and the Coppa Italia in his first season. And Moratti told Sky Sport Italia: “I think Kante has everything to give even more strength to Inter.  "We signed Wesley Sneijder even if we already had a solid team, but we became exceptional with him. 2 “The same is true of Kante. But, I am saying this as a fan, it will be hard to sign him.” Conte led Chelsea to the Premier League crown in his first campaign...
