Roman Abramovich Identifies Top Striker Chelsea Must Sign This Summer

Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich has identified Romelu Lukaku as a top priority for the club this summer transfer window.

Sunday World reports that the Russian billionaire is ready to back the manager, Thomas Tuchel to sign a high-profile striker in the summer transfer window.

According to the report, he is all but set to re-sign Lukaku following Antonio Conte’s departure at Inter Milan.

Tuchel has overseen dramatic improvements in the Blues defence record since taking over the reins in January.

However, the former Borussia Dortmund and PSG boss is keen on further strengthening the frontline and also hopes to bring in Raphael Varane, Marquinhos, Niklas Sule, Jules Kounde to make the Blues strong title contenders.

Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland are both firmly on the Blues’ radar as potential options.

But the club’s owner is ‘eager’ to have Lukaku back at Stamford Bridge as he is one of his ‘favourite strikers’, according to The Sunday World.

Kepa Arrizabalaga, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ross Barkley, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tammy Abraham are all deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge and could be sold to raise funds for the likes of Lukaku ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
