Chelsea still seem to see Romelu Lukaku as the one that got away as he continues his brilliant form for Everton.
The Toffees frontman hit a hat-trick against Bournemouth last weekend, fuelling the Blues’ interest in bringing him back to Stamford Bridge.
Yahoo Sport are reporting that even though Antonio Conte is set to win the Premier League in his first season in charge, he will still ask Roman Abramovich for reinforcements in the summer.
Lukaku and Valencia’s Joao Cancelo are top of his list, and that says a lot about Diego Costa’s future.
Costa is still expected in some quarters to head to the Chinese Super League at the end of the season, as he’s thought to be disgruntled that after last month’s falling out, Chelsea still haven’t upped his wages.
Celtic’s Moussa Dembele has also been discussed as a possible option, but Lukaku is proven in the top flight of English football.
The Belgian has scored 16 goals in 23 league games this term, and if he can find a little more consistency towards the end of the season when he tends to tail off, he could be the perfect replacement for Costa.
