Report: Chelsea shift focus to Alvaro Morata

With Chelsea desperate for a leader in the final third as Diego Costa remains sulking, this could be an association made for each other.

"Of course he is one of my best friends and he is my neighbour as well", Lukaku said.

Morata is a complete modern striker, who is strong on the ball, has energy and pace, and at 6ft 2in is also lethal in the air.

The 24-year-old's route to the first team at the Bernabeu is currently blocked by Karim Benzema, and the bookies expect Chelsea to offer Morata an escape route. Meanwhile, Batshuayi was afforded only one Premier League start during his maiden campaign in England.

Celtic have slipped 16 places in the latest UEFA rankings to 64th as Rangers re-enter the list - in 306th place.

Another possible target is Andrea Belotti, who has taken Serie A by storm over the last 12 months.

Jose Mourinho turned his attentions towards Matic, who was reportedly in line for a £40m move to Old Trafford, after baulking at the £50m valuation given for Dier. Conte follows the Italian leagues closely and he will be aware of the potential that Belotti possesses.

Hibs boss Neil Lennon is running the rule over former Aberdeen striker and Welsh international Simon Church.

The likes of Karim Benzema, Isco, Luka Modric and Dani Carvajal also posed for photos for social media before they set off on their journey.

The new season of world biggest football leagues have not yet commenced, yet they keep us entertained with all the transfer rumours and new deals.

The signing appears to have pushed Zouma down the pecking order of centre-backs at the Bridge.

The Spanish giants have a transfer embargo on them, a situation they failed to change following their failed appeal to CAS.

According to AS sources involved in the Morata operation the London club will submit a bid of close to 80 million euros, including all variables, to Real Madrid in the next few days.

"They need to keep hold of Diego Costa".

Lukaku was expected to shoulder that goalscoring burden but Morata was, at one stage, pencilled in as Costa's most likely successor.

On Monday, Marca claimed the Blues had negotiating with Borussia Dortmund for their African striker.
