Chelsea's failed attempt to re-sign Romelu Lukaku from Everton certainly caused plenty of consternation among Blues supporters who took to social media in droves to voice frustration and angst at an outcome that saw the Belgium worldwide shun Stamford Bridge in favour of Old Trafford, Manchester United, and a curious reunification with former boss Jose Mourinho.

They say the Monaco midfielder travelled to London on Thursday and passed his medical yesterday.

Chelsea hope Bakayoko will complete his medical and get the all clear to sign before they go on pre-season tour to China and Singapore on Monday, but the 22-year-old's fitness remains a concern.

It looks as though Bakayoko's transfer to Chelsea is only a matter of time.

Now, Bakayoko is over the line and if they can land a striker, Chelsea's summer will be set with only replacements needed for departures.

Romelu Lukaku joined United in a similar fashion, despite being in pole position to sign for the London giants, who were considered the favourites.

Juventus intend to try to sign Nemanja Matic from Chelsea this summer.

He tweeted suggesting he was on his way to Manchester - having been linked with United - but was then pictured at Chelsea's Cobham HQ.

The Stamford Bridge outfit have now made Morata a priority. And Blues fans won't have been amused to read about Mourinho gloating over his capture of Lukaku in the Evening Standard with their former manager saying "it's only natural that he wants to develop his career at the biggest club".

Chelsea are confident the player will not require further surgery, but he may not be able to go straight into full training which means he could miss the opening three Premier League games - Burnley, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton.

Costa, who endured a fractious relationship with Conte last season, is linked to a move back to Atletico Madrid even though the Spanish club can not register new players until January because of a blanket Federation Internationale de Football Association transfer ban.
