Decision time for Conte as Chelsea consider alternatives as they look to fill key role

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling pretty glum this evening…

It has been a pretty disappointing couple of days, particularly with regards to the prospect of signing a new striker, with Romelu Lukaku now reportedly set for a medical with Manchester United.

Of course, the Blues have been linked pretty heavily with the Belgian this summer, and so Antonio Conte is likely going to have to look elsewhere as he looks to fill the role this summer.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, though, the Blues have moved quickly to make a decision in that regard – with Chelsea now reportedly looking towards the duo of Alvaro Morata and Andrea Belotti as potential signings this summer.

Both players would represent a good option, particularly given their goalscoring record last season. Belotti bagged 26 league goals last season – even more than Lukaku – whilst Morata bagged an equally impressive 15 league goals despite starting just 14 times.

Whilst any prospective move remains some way off, that hasn’t stopped the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern from looking towards the deals with optimism. In truth, they just want to forget the Lukaku saga now, with more pressing matters to attend to this summer.
