Chelsea locked up in civil war

CHELSEA are locked in a £70 million wrangle over which striker will be their number one summer target.

Technical director Michael Emenalo wants unsettled Everton star Romelu Lukaku back at Chelsea having taken him there in 2011 as a youngster.

Lukaku’s experience of English football is another huge factor in Emenalo’s argument to go for the big Belgian who is the Premier League’s top scorer with 21 goals.

Lukaku has rejected Everton’s latest contract offer and looks on his way from Goodison Park with team-mate Yannick Bolasie claiming his mate has a ‘big plan’.

Conte wants a big-name centre forward because there is a deep-seated feeling within Chelsea that current striker Diego Costa will leave in the summer despite calling a truce after a row with his boss.
