Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling very optimistic at the start of this week, following their FA Cup semi-final victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
That win kept the hopes of a domestic double for the West London giants alive, as they prepare for the finale to their Premier League campaign and face an FA Cup final showdown with London rivals Arsenal next month.
Despite the push for glory, Antonio Conte’s side are already preparing for the summer as they bolster their ranks for a return to the Champions League and The Daily Mirror states the Blues have focused their attention on two Premier League aces.
Southampton defender Virgil Van Dijk and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku are top of Antonio Conte’s wish-list this summer, as the Blues prepare to bolster their options in defence and add a world-class striker to their ranks – especially with Diego Costa likely to leave.
Lukaku, formerly of Chelsea, is believed to be keen on a return to Stamford Bridge and our landlord believes the Belgian is almost certain to return to West London during the summer transfer window.
The Blues fans by the bar here in the Transfer Tavern would love to see the duo plying their trade at Stamford Bridge next season, and are hoping Conte can deliver the goods this summer.
