After just a year at the club following his return, Chelsea are reportedly looking to part ways with Romelu Lukaku this summer.
The Belgian International was bought for a huge amount of money, however, he has failed to live up to expectations.
Ahead of the current transfer window, Chelsea is reportedly interested in signing players like Nkunku, Raheem Sterling, Declan Rice and Jules Kounde.
In this article, we take a look at how Chelsea could line up with these players.
Thomas Tuchel could revert to the 4-3-3 formation with Edouard Mendy starting in the goal.
With Jules Kounde in the mix, the Frenchman could be used as a central defender alongside veteran Thiago Silva. Reece James and Ben Chilwell should operate as full-backs.
Rice could form a midfield trio with the duo of Mason Mount and Mateo Kovacic.
In attack, Nkunku could play as a false 9 while Kai Havertz and Sterling provide support from the wings.
Here’s an illustration of the possible lineup below:
