Antonio Conte told Roman Abramovich that he wants a new attacker at all costs.

Diego Costa is leaving the club, Chelsea plays in three big competitions next season and they can not compete properly without a real striker.

Conte’s greatest wish is Romelu Lukaku. Lukaku has been in Chelsea once but he left, and this summer he is the most wanted player in the Premiership. He himself said that he’s leaving Everton this summer and it is no secret that he would have nothing against returning to Stamford Bridge.

But he can’t go so easily. At first, it seemed that Everton would sell their best player for €100 million, but now the price has risen. This is not a problem for Conte since he clearly told Abramovich:

“I do not care what they are asking for, bring me Lukaku, I don’t care how much he costs!”

The English media say that Everton will not give up Lukaku for less than €120 million, which should not be a big problem for Chelsea. But if there are more clubs involved, that figure could easily grow.
