Athletic: Chelsea make two bids for Romelu Lukaku

Breaking news this Monday morning comes from the reliable Athletic.

Chelsea’s striker pursuit seems to be heating up this week and it is now drawing close to the point of being now or never.

Erling Haaland seems to be the toughest deal to do of any of the rumoured targets, and this week is the alleged deadline for Chelsea to make an offer for him.

However, Romelu Lukaku has always been the apparent backup option, but perhaps judging by the latest news he has now become the priority target for Chelsea.

This is because The Athletic report that Chelsea have made two offers for Lukaku, signalling their intent to sign him this summer, and also suggesting defeat in their Haaland pursuit.

They believe that despite Lukaku’s public comments and being happy at Inter Milan, and also the club keen to keep hold of him, they say Chelsea do still feel a deal can be done here this summer.
