Chelsea to make sensational players-plus-cash offer to sign key summer target

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, it seems, has now made up his mind to re-sign Romelu Lukaku for the any cost! According to reports in The Sun, the Blues are now set to offer two of their players - goalkeeper Asmir Begovic and forward Loic Remy - to Everton as makeweights in a potential offer for the Belgian superstar.

The Toffees, however, are understood to have already rejected a massive £65m bid from the Blues, for the forward, which in turn means that Conte’s side may have to even offer a significant amount of cash along with the two players, if they wish to tempt the Merseysiders into selling the 23 year old.


Chelsea are known to be desperate for a big-name forwards signing this summer, despite having recently bought Michy Batshuayi, and it is believed that Lukaku is the prime name on the manager’s wishlist. Having said that, the fact remains that the west Londoners may ideally not use Begovic in a swap deal for the forward, going by the fact that the former Stoke City keeper is good backup for Thibaut Courtois. Remy, however, may be expandable, more so as he may be pushed further down the pecking order, should Lukaku indeed return to Stamford Bridge in the near future.

Nevertheless, Everton themselves are known to be strongly unwilling to part ways with the Belgian this summer, and it will be interesting to see what steps Conte takes in the weeks to come in order to ensure the acquisition of the former Blues youngster.
