Chelsea planning Lukaku-Kane swap?

Chelsea could make a shock approach to swap Romelu Lukaku with Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane next summer.

The Blues re-signed Lukaku from Inter Milan for £97 million last term, but he struggled with just 15 goals across all competitions.

As a result, Lukaku was loaned back to the Nerazzurri this campaign, but the San Siro giants don't have the option to buy him.

Amidst this, Calciomercato report that the Blues could make a surprise attempt to land Kane next summer in exchange for Lukaku.

Lukaku had a superb 2021/22 season under manager Antonio Conte at Inter Milan, but the Italian manager left the club soon after.

Conte, who is now Spurs' manager, could be offered a reunion with the striker. It remains to be seen whether a move materialises.

Kane is currently enjoying his best football under Conte at Spurs, but the striker's contract is due to expire in less than two years.

If a new deal is not agreed by next summer, there could be a genuine possibility of Kane ending his long association with Spurs.
