Chelsea set to sign a top class striker this summer

After a season of turmoil for Chelsea, this summer looks set to be one of change for all involved. 

The west London outfit, who won the Premier League title under the guidance of Jose Mourinho back in 2015, finished this past campaign way back in 10th position. 

Mourinho, of course, departed back in December and was replaced by interim manager Guus Hiddink.

And while Hiddink steadied the ship at Stamford Bridge, there's still so much work to be done in the pursuit of redemption. 

One decision has already been made, of course: Antonio Conte will arrive at Chelsea this summer and fans will be expecting him to enter the transfer market ahead of the new season. 

Transfer list 

Unsurprisingly, then, the Telegraph have reported that the Stamford Bridge hierarchy are monitoring three potential striker signings. 

It has been well documented that the likes of Diego Costa, Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao struggled to come to prominence last term, so it wouldn't exactly come as a surprise if the club changed the dynamic of their forward line sooner rather than later.

But who is on the club's radar? Well, the report claims that the Blues are interested in Alvaro Morata, Romelu Lukaku and Gonzalo Higuain. All three players would most definitely improve Chelsea, but it won't be easy for the club to land them. 

Indeed, Morata is a wanted man and could prove very costly. The report indicates that Real Madrid will exercise their buy-back clause on the forward and then sell him on for a large profit. Arsenal are one club set to enter the race to bring him to England. 

Then there's Lukaku, who famously departed Chelsea in favour of a move to Everton back in 2014. Despite the Merseyside club's woeful season, the Belgium international struck 18 goals and racked up six assists in the Premier League alone. Ultimately, though, Chelsea may well have to spend up to £65 million on a player they previously had at their disposal. 

Argentine ace Higuain would certainly prove an interesting coup for the Premier League club. The Napoli forward enjoyed a successful campaign in Serie A - he netted a remarkable 36 goals in 35 outings - but it remains to be seen as to whether the Chelsea hierarchy pursue him. 

The club certainly have some fine options on their list of targets, but they mustn't rest on their laurels ahead of the opening of the transfer window.
