Chelsea to swoop for Premier League duo this summer
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte wants to sign both Romelu Lukaku and Virgil van Dijk this summer, per Bleacher Report.
The Blues are on the brink of winning a fifth Premier League title and reached the FA Cup final last weekend, but Conte is already focussed on improving his squad ahead of next season.
Both van Dijk and Lukaku are in high demand after impressing for Southampton and Everton respectively. But Chelsea hope their success this term will give them an advantage.
Van Dijk, 26, could be the perfect replacement for the departing John Terry, who will leave after 22 years at Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
Lukaku, 23, has scored 24 goals this term, making him the Premier League’s top goalscorer. Hr is well known to Chelsea having spent three years there before joining the Toffees for £28million in 2014.
They may need a striker too, with Diego Costa’s future still in doubt after interest from a Chinese club in January led to a bust-op between him and Conte.
