Transfer News Today: Chelsea Launch Shock Bid For £30m Liverpool Man To Replace Outgoing Star

Chelsea Line Up Massive Benteke Bid

Antonio Conte is set to embark on one of the summer’s shock transfer moves as he looks to bring in a proven Premier League centre-forward.

The man he has identified is Liverpool flop Christian Beneteke. A weird one you may think, but the Italian boss is eager to add a strong and commanding presence to his forward line, with Diego Costa attracting real attention from former club Atletico Madrid.

The Blues' prime target is Romelu Lukaku, but they have baulked at the £60m asking price and believe they can snare his fellow Belgian for a third of that price.

Pochettino Targets Kane Back Up

Tottenham are set to step up their interest in one of Europe’s most highly-rated young players after the Basel Chairman confirmed that he is almost resigned to losing 19-year-old Breel Embolo.

The Switzerland international has scored 29 goals in two seasons for the club and has already racked up nine international caps, despite his tender age.

Chelsea are also thought to be keen on a deal but a move to White Hart Lane would mean more game time and provide Harry Kane with a genuine rival for the number nine berth .

Steven Caulker. Remember him? Well, he is a man in demand this summer, despite arriving and then disappearing at Liverpool all within the space of around 2 weeks.

The QPR centre-half has shown his talent before but the last couple of seasons have been a struggle. Nevertheless, both Crystal Palace and West Brom have placed him at the top of their wish lists.

It seems the Baggies are at the head of the queue as Rangers fight to get one of their highest earner off the wage bill. That could see the Midlands club get the England international for a snip.
