Chelsea’s busy summer is yet to begin, however the end of the international break may help to hurry things up.

Following a disappointing season, Romelu Lukau’s probable return to Inter Milan appears to be one possibility being considered, while Jules Kounde remains a target.

Thomas Tuchel has previously worked with Ousmane Dembele, so he remains a vital objective, but the alterations may not end there.

Cesar Azpilicueta, the club captain, is said to have a two-year contract offer from Barcelona on the table as he awaits Tuchel’s decision on his future.

The most recent Chelsea news and speculations are listed below…

Lukaku, Romelu

Inter Milan and Chelsea are discussing the possibility of a loan transfer for Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgian’s difficulties since returning to Stamford Bridge have been well chronicled, and the 29-year-old has made no secret of his admiration for the Italian giants.

Chelsea could benefit with having part of Ousmane Dembele’s enormous wages off the payroll as they pursue a potential move for him.

Chelsea is expected to demand a loan fee of roughly £10 million for the player they brought back for £97.5 million, according to Standard Sport.

The Jules Kounde to Chelsea drama is becoming a protracted one, despite being widely anticipated to be the first signing of the Todd Boehly era.

Despite the fact that Barcelona has expressed interest in signing him, Standard Sport knows that the Premier League heavyweights remain in command of the race to recruit him.

The groundwork has already been built, and Barca’s interest may not be enough to prevent Chelsea from landing the Frenchman.

Tuchel could use the rest of his defense to stay together now that Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger have already departed Chelsea.

Still, Fabrizio Romano claims Barca are prepared to make it a battle to keep club captain Cesar Azpilicueta at Stamford Bridge and are prepared to offer the veteran a two-year-deal in order to tempt him back to Spain.
