Well, at least a little bit, things are heating up for Chelsea in the transfer market.
The dominoes of transfer are beginning to fall as things start to move and snap into place.
Romelu Lukaku will sign with Inter Milan the following week, and at that point, the hunt for a successor will heat up significantly.
Many names have been associated with Chelsea for the attack, and it is anticipated that they will sign two new strikers this summer to replace Lukaku and likely at least one other attacker.
The likes of Raheem Sterling, Richarlison, Ousmane Dembele, and many others have all been heavily linked with Chelsea recently, and in an hour-long appearance on The Si & Dan Talk Chelsea Podcast, the dependable Ben Jacobs had the most recent inside information on all of them as well as center-back targets, the midfield, and outgoings this summer.
The information below provides a brief overview of the assailants.
"Sterling is the No.1 target, I think the fee will be £40m-£45m.
"Tuchel said directly to Boehly he admires Dembele. Chelsea are put off by high wages, this needs discussing internally. No chance for PSG."
