Chelsea FC transfer news: Predicted Blues line up featuring Antonio Rudiger, Alvaro Morata and more new signings

Sunday, July 9, 2017

Chelsea confirmed their second signing of the summer transfer window on Sunday, adding Antonio Rudiger from Roma to Antonio Conte’s squad.

Willy Caballero has also been brought to Stamford Bridge on a free transfer, as the Italian manager builds his team for the 2017/18 campaign.

However, they have been dealt a blow in the hunt for one of their key transfer targets, with Manchester United agreeing a deal to sign Everton’s Romelu Lukaku subject to personal terms and a medical.

The Blues wanted Belgium forward Lukaku, but are being forced to look elsewhere for a Diego Costa replacement.

Reports have linked Conte with a move for Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata as the Lukaku alternative, with Bernabeu teammate Danilo also on the west London club’s radar.

Furthermore, it is believed the Blues have shelved their interest in Alex Sandro as Juventus have set the asking price for the Brazil wing back too high.
