Romelu Lukaku is trying to force a return back to Inter Milan this summer, after things didn’t go as planned for him in the just concluded campaign at Chelsea.
It is increasingly looking likely that the Belgium international won’t be playing at Chelsea next summer, which means Chelsea must get a new striker this summer.
They have been linked with the likes of Robert Lewandoski, Christopher Nkunku, and Darwin Nunez, but recent reports claims Chelsea are are looking at the possibility of signing Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City this summer.
Gabriel Jesus might not be the high profile named striker that the Chelsea fans might want, but one thing that is certain about the Brazilian is that, he knows how to get goals, if he gets constant playing time.

Chelsea would only need to keep him fit, so as to make him a valuable asset for the team.
3. Jules Kounde
Chelsea would be losing Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger this summer, and they are in quick need for top defensive reinforcement this summer.
Jules Kounde is regarded as one of the best defenders in the La Liga, as he helped Sevilla kept the best defensive La Liga record in the just concluded campaign, and Chelsea are reported to be in the race for his signature.
4. Matthijs de Ligt
Thomas Tuchel is reported to be a fan of Matthijs de Ligt, as he believes the Juventus left footed central defender could be perfect replacement for Antonio Rudiger at the club next season.

5. Declan Rice
Rice has been a long term target for Chelsea for the past two summers, and Thomas Tuchel is also believed to like the idea of signing the player for the club, but the transfer fee that is requested by West Ham for the midfielder has been the stumbling block over the previous summers.
But the Chelsea new owners want to make statement of intents in this summer transfer window, and could sanction the purchase of Declan Rice this summer.
These above stated five players could cost Chelsea up to £250 million in transfer fees.
