Chelsea transfer news: Romelu Lukaku, Tiago Maia, Oscar, Juan Cuadrado latest

Antonio Conte has suggested that Romelu Lukaku could become a Chelsea player this summer, according to the Evening Standard.

“I think in the future something can happen with the transfer market, in and out,” he said on Wednesday, prior to his side’s 3-1 win over Milan.

“We know that in the future, different changes can happen, both in and out, with the players.”

The Belgium international is believed to be eager to leave Everton, who reportedly have until the weekend to respond to Chelsea’s offer of £60m plus the out-of-favour Loic Remy.

Remy’s departure would be one of several as Conte prepares to trim his squad, report the Evening Standard.

The likes of Asmir Begovic and Juan Cuadrado face uncertain futures but Oscar, who scored twice against Milan, may have earned himself a reprieve.

“Oscar is an important player and the season when Chelsea won the title he was fantastic,” Conte told reporters after the win.

“Last season was bad for all the players – not just for Oscar. But he is a good player with a great talent but he can improve a lot.

“I see a good attitude and a good will and this tour have been important to me because I am judging the players during the training sessions so I can try to find the right solution.”

One player who could be on his way to Stamford Bridge is Tiago Maia, who is being watched by the west London club’s scouts in Rio.

The 19-year-old is currently on international duty with Brazil at the Olympics and, according to the Daily Mirror, could cost around £15m.
