Chelsea are interested in Romelu Lukaku and Erling Haaland as they look to further strengthen their squad after their Champions League success.
As reported by air sports, the Blues are looking to improve their attacking options, with their former striker Lukaku among the options being considered.
Lukaku, who has scored 30 goals in 44 games in all competitions this season, is likely to leave Inter Milan this summer as the Italian side struggles financially.

Lukaku, 28, who played at Chelsea between 2011 and 2014, is expected to cost around £100 million.
Haaland, meanwhile, is one of the most sought-after players in world football, with the Borussia Dortmund star having a fantastic record of 57 goals in 59 appearances for the German side.
The 20-year-old has a three-year contract with Dortmund, although he does have a £66 million breakout clause that comes into effect in the summer of 2022.
There are likely to be a number of key strikers’ departures at Chelsea to make room for potential new signings.

Olivier Giroud, who was an unused substitute against Manchester City in the Champions League final, is likely to leave when his contract expires at the end of next month.
Tammy Abraham finished the season as Chelsea’s joint top scorer with 12 goals, but was also able to leave as he was on the brink of proceedings lately.
Timo Werner, who also scored 12 goals, will still be part of Thomas Tuchel’s roster next season, although he may face additional competition for places.
