It’s set to be a summer of change at Stamford Bridge this summer, and our regular Chelsea supporting punters cannot wait for the Conte revolution!
Belgian newspaper HLN is claiming Chelsea have been in contact with Everton for two of their players: Romelu Lukaku and John Stones.
Both sides have had a difficult 2015/16 with Chelsea putting in the worst title defence in Premier League history, and the Toffees seemingly going backwards under Roberto Martinez before the Spaniard’s sacking.
Chelsea will be hoping for vastly improved fortunes under the incoming Antonio Conte, and it’s widely expected that the Italian will have plenty of resources afforded to him to reshape his new squad.
Stones was the subject of a number of Chelsea bids last season which ultimately failed but after seeing the young defender’s career beginning to stall on Merseyside, with a number of high profile mistakes too, he may feel the tutelage of Antonio Conte would be too good to miss out on.
Meanwhile, despite Everton’s struggles, Lukaku has been in fine form this year and deserves to be playing at the very highest level, something Chelsea, regardless of this season, can offer more than the Goodison Park outfit.
These two could be the first of many Conte signings, but who might follow? Our landlord at the Transfer Tavern thinks these FIVE could soon be at Stamford Bridge……
