Good morning Chelsea fans
New Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has reportedly promised Thomas Tuchel full control over transfers.
It should also put an end to expensive, wasteful transfers… like £97.5m Romelu Lukaku.
Lukaku has “messaged Inter Milan since Christmas” to secure a return to the club.
This follows reports from Sky Italia that Lukaku has been calling former team-mates, the coach, directors and the president of Inter Milan since Christmas to try to return to the San Siro.
Jules Kounde will reportedly join Chelsea ‘before the end of the month’.
The Blues have been chasing the Frenchman since last summer when they turned down an approach from the LaLiga side.
Sevilla are already working on finding his replacement.
Arsenal and Chelsea have been given a boost in the pursuit of Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus.
Jesus and Man City reportedly agreed his asking price would be set at £43million.
