Joe Cole tells Chelsea to re-sign Romelu Lukaku

Everton Eye Napoli Striker As Potential Romelu Lukaku Replacement

With Costa's future at Stamford Bridge uncertain, Chelsea have earmarked Lukaku - who previously played for the Blues - and Arsenal forward Sanchez among a host of names to recruit this summer. "Conte has told him that he wants him out so you would be looking at a striker", Cole told Goal.com.

Should Bakayoko sign for the champions, it looks set to be the first of a significant spending spree for Conte this summer, which is also likely to see Costa leave Stamford Bridge.

"The reason Costa came out with this announcement and Conte was happy for it to be public, he was anxious Chelsea might hesitate to get him his main transfer target which is Romelu Lukaku and at some point might come back and say is he sure that he doesn't want to keep Costa".

Former Chelsea attacker Joe Cole says that Everton forward Romelu Lukaku would be the ideal player to replace Diego Costa at Stamford Bridge.

And Cole thinks Lukaku, along with Alexis Sanchez and Sergio Aguero, would be suitable signings to fill the void left by Costa.

The Toffees were under no compulsion to do so with the player still having two years on his current deal, but the gesture of goodwill went unacknowledged by the player and his coterie, including super-agent Mino Raiola who continued to pursue a big money move for the player.

"But what I would say is that the pressure is different when you play for Chelsea, rather than Everton".

In any case, Cole suggests that his lack of Premier League experience would be a concern.

Everton are considering making a move for Napoli striker Duvan Zapata as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku. "I think one of them three could be enough to make sure Chelsea are not weakened and maybe strengthened a little bit as well".

"The financial structure of it and the cost..." [Alvaro] Morata is another one but he has never played in England so there is a little question mark there.

Essien, meanwhile, has said that the pair had a good relationship during their time together, and a reunion is certainly possible, as long as they both want it.
