Good morning and welcome to Thursday’s Chelsea live blog from football.london.
There are now under three weeks remaining of the summer transfer window and business is intensifying for the Blues.
Romelu Lukaku’s £98million move from Inter Milan looks to be imminent, as you can see in the blog below, with a fresh update.
Meanwhile, the west London club are still chasing a defender, with Jules Kounde said to be at the top of Thomas Tuchel’s thinking.
There are also set to be some outgoings from Stamford Bridge before the window reaches its conclusion at the end of the month.
We expect to hear plenty more on transfer business throughout the day, as well as pre-match updates as Chelsea prepare for their opening Premier League clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon. There will also be live reaction from the Blues’ UEFA Super Cup victory.
With that being said, make sure you stay tuned for the latest updates from west London.
