Of course the name of Erling Haaland is the one that has been largely branded around as the main option, and that may still be the case.

However, according to a report last night from Andy Dillon of The Sun, Chelsea are now stepping up plans to sign Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku this summer, with the former Blue being seen as the ‘most achievable’ option over Haaland.

They quote a fee of around £90 million to be able to land the Belgian international and bring him back to the Premier League, and the familiar surroundings of Stamford Bridge.

It certainly has that fairy-tale feel about it!
