The Chelsea striker saga continues, and so do the weeks in this summer transfer window.
As we all know by now, Chelsea are looking to make 2 or 3 new additions to the squad this summer to help Thomas Tuchel compete with the likes of Manchester City for the Premier League title.
The priority for this summer has always been a new striker, and all the talk has been surrounding Erling Haaland and Romelu Lukaku.
Sky Italy’s Angelo Mangiante has been reporting on the situation all the way through and he maintains that Haaland is the priority, but describes that as being a ‘tough target’ and reiterates that Lukaku is the ‘second option’ but Inter Milan do not want to sell.
He does reassure fans though, that a new striker ‘will certainly arrive’ at the club this summer.

Hi mates, three quick things…
1) A new striker will certainly arrive.
2) Haaland is not a mission impossible.
He is a tough target, but he is still the CFC main summer goal.
3) The second option is Lukaku and Inter don't want to sell Romelu. But it's a long summer…:)

As Angelo says, it is a long summer, but we would be a bit more settled if we at least saw some early movements for a new striker soon!
