As the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern do their very best to block out any memories of this season, attentions are firmly focused on the looming transfer window.
The West London side, as you might expect, have been linked with all manner of players from around the globe as Antonio Conte gears up to arrive in the nation’s capital.
According to the Daily Mail, the Blues are working through a wish list of strikers ahead of his arrival that includes a number of illustrious names.
The report claims the Italian boss is increasingly aware that controversial forward Diego Costa would prefer a move back to Spain this summer after struggling in his second year with the club.
He has been linked with an emotional return to former club Atletico Madrid over the course of the summer.
With that in mind, the 46-year old and his backroom team are understood to be casting watchful eyes over three of the most lethal marksmen in Europe.
Gonzalo Higuain, in rampant form for Napoli this term, is believed to be one of the men considered to replace the Spanish international.
Everton star Romelu Lukaku, a former Chelsea player, is another said to be of interest.
