Chelsea still hope to land £125m triple swoop later this month

Blues' summer spending could reach around £200m as Antonio Conte continues his pursuit of Everton's Romelu Lukaku

CHELSEA are ready to splash out £125million to land three main transfer targets.

Chelsea are thought to be close to completing the deal to land Monaco’s midfielder powerhouse Bakayoko in a £35m deal.

And he is set to be followed through the door by Germany international defender Rudiger who will sign for £30m from Roma.

Conte could make it a hat-trick of deals when they step up their chase to land Juventus full-back Sandro with a £60m offer at the beginning of next week according to the Telegraph.

There is growing optimism around the English champions that they can lure Sandro to the club this summer if the price is right.

If they can push through a deal, Sandro will become Chelsea’s most expensive player ever eclipsing the £50m they paid Liverpool for Fernando Torres in 2011.

The 26-year-old left-back has three years left on his current contract with the Old Lady and Juventus are ready to offer him a new deal to ward off the interest from Chelsea.

It has been a busy week for transfer deals at the club with Nathan Ake and Bertrand Traore ending their spells with the club.

Chelsea have already pocketed around £60m by selling players with Asmir Begovic, Juan Cuadrado and Christian Atsu also been shown the exit door.

And now they are ready to invest heavily with Bakayoko and Rudiger expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Bakayoko, 22, has already completed his medical whilst Rudiger’s agent flew into London on Friday to complete personal terms.

Conte still wants to land a striker with Diego Costa’s future unclear and has prioritised Everton’s Romelu Lukaku as a potential replacement.

The Toffees are holding out for £70m for the big Belgian which could take their summer spending to around £200m.
