Chelsea supporters in the Transfer Tavern are diverting their attention to other striking targets having missed the signing of Romelu Lukaku.
Romelu Lukaku’s decision to join Manchester United rather than the champions, Chelsea, comes as a fresh blow for Antonio Conte in his pursuit for a new striker. With Diego Costa’s intention to leave the club being public knowledge, Conte has been relentlessly pursuing replacements for the Spaniard.
