Conte Determined To Sign Kylian Mbappe To Partner Lukaku In Attack Next Season



Kylian Mbappe

It is now widely known that Diego Costa is leaving Stamford Bridge this summer, and Monaco star player Kylian Mbappe has emerged as a target for Chelsea.

And Le10Sport are reporting that Chelsea boss Antonio Conte have identified the teenager as the ideal replacement for Costa, and he will make a late attempt to convince the French star to join Chelsea.

The 18-year-old was so impressive in the just concluded season – both in the Ligue I and in the Champions League. And as a result of his form, various big clubs across Europe have been trying to get his signature. Real Madrid, Arsenal, and Manchester City are long-time hunters, and Ligue I heavyweights PSG has recently joined in the race for Mbappe.

And now, Le10sport insists the Premier League champions will make a big play for the French starlet in the coming days and their Italian manager is set to meet Mbappe and his entourage over a potential transfer.

Definitely, the player won’t be coming cheaply, but money won’t be a problem for Conte. It is understood that he has been given huge money by the board to bolster his squad this summer, and he is also expecting a huge fund from Costa’s sale. Chelsea hopes to fetch at least £50 million for the Spanish forward this summer.

Chelsea are getting closer to signing Lukaku from Everton, and Mbappe is expected to partner Lukaku alongside Hazard in the attack next term.
