Following the announcement of Marcus Bettinelli on a free basis from Fulham, Chelsea look set to announce the signing of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan after both parties (Chelsea and Inter Milan) agreed on a fee worth €115m.
With the arrival of Lukaku imminent, Chelsea are now fully focused on the transfer of Sevilla’s centre back Jules Kounde. Chelsea offered Kurt Zouma plus cash worth £30m but the Frenchman (Zouma) does not want to be used in any form of swap deal.
Chelsea are however planning to restructure and go all in for the highly rated defender who is also happy to join the UEFA Champions League defending champions.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has given his verdict on the major quality he wants his potential signings to possess as he reiterates that he wants them to come to Chelsea with a winning mentality.
Chelsea won the best trophy in the football world under the management of the German coach last season with Jorginho and Emerson going on to win Euro 2020 with Italy and Christian Pulisic scoring the match winner as USA wins CONCACAF.
Romelu Lukaku who is poised to join Chelsea also led Inter Milan to their first Serie A title in 11 years and hereby ending Juventus nine year reign as Scudetto champions.
Thomas Tuchel wants potential new arrivals to come to the club with a winning mentality ahead of Chelsea’s 2021/2022 campaign.
