Chelsea end their interest in Alvaro Morata

Conte has Sanchez, Lukaku on summer shortlist

Premier League leaders Chelsea have reportedly ended their pursuit of Real Madrid ace Alvaro Morata ahead of the summer transfer window.

Blues boss Antonio Conte has now set his sights on Premier League pair Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku, both of whom have been in fine form for their respective clubs this term, The Telegraph reports.

Sanchez, 28, is currently approaching the final year of his Gunners contract, and it is understood that he could favour a move to a London club with a 'winning mentality'.

On the other hand, former player Lukaku has revelled during his time at Everton, and he is now keen on a move to a Champions League club after having turned down a fresh Toffees contract.

Both Sanchez (18) and Lukaku(21) have netted more goals than Diego Costa this campaign, and it is no surprise that Conte has brought them onto his radar prior to this summer's transfer window.

Costa is still uncertain over his future beyond the current campaign, and his departure, preferably to Paris Saint-Germain could encourage a potential double swoop at Stamford Bridge.
