New club joins race for Chelsea wantaway

Conte had set his heart on Romelu Lukaku and saw the Everton striker as the central piece in the jigsaw for next season before Manchester United came in to hijack the transfer.

Via Yahoo/NBC Sports- "Torino is said to want the full release clause in Belotti's contract, which is $113 million, and their president is adamant the 23-year-old will not leave for less than that".

However, after the Red Devils stole Lukaku from right under the noses of his former employers, the club's priorities changed, and Morata was no longer a desperately wanted commodity at Old Trafford.

Diego Costa has started to say his farewells at Chelsea ahead of a summer return to Atletico Madrid, according to reports in the English media.

Chelsea are also reportedly ready to revive their interest in signing Swansea City striker Fernando Llorente. However, a move to Chelsea would make sense.

Chelsea had other targets on their list including Manchester United bound Lukaku, Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata and Andrea Belotti. However, the Premier League champions entering the fray could change things.

The Spain worldwide plundered 20 Premier League goals last season as the club stormed to the title and will leave a sizeable gap upon his departure. Wenger might prefer to hold him to the final year of his deal and lose him for nothing next year, but that scenario rarely happens.

Tianijin Quanjian were willing to pay Chelsea £76m for Costa in January, but Atletico believe they can sign him for less than half that figure now.

Unlikely because of his long-term injury, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic guarantees goals wherever he goes and has been showing no sign of slowing down even as he prepares to turn 36 later this year. I hope things go well, if I stay or I'm going.

That's why Chelsea need this situation sorted, and fast.
