Chelsea are reportedly planning to sign a new centre-forward next summer despite Romelu Lukaku's return to the club over the summer.

Chelsea are reportedly planning to move for a new centre-forward next summer despite spending a club record £97.5m to re-sign Romelu Lukaku during the recent transfer window.

The Blues brought Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge from Inter Milan, and the Belgium international has scored four times in six appearances for Thomas Tuchel's side this term.

According to Fichajes, Chelsea are keen to sign 'a companion' for Lukaku, although the capital giants will have to sell at least one attacker in order to boost their forward options.

Kai Havertz and Mason Mount have largely played in support of the Belgian this season, but an injury to the latter allowed Timo Werner to start Saturday's Premier League clash with Manchester City.

Chelsea will allegedly be interested in signing Erling Braut Haaland next summer when a release clause in his Borussia Dortmund contract becomes active.

However, the London outfit will seemingly have to fight off competition from the likes of Real Madrid, Man City and Manchester United in order to secure the Norway international's signature.
