Striker Lukaku is on his way back to Inter Milan on loan after a disastrous year and Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is looking to beef up his forward line in response.

Richarlison, Raheem Sterling and Ousmane Dembele have all been heavily linked with moves to Stamford Bridge and all would be considered great additions by the current squad.

But fiery Brazilian Richarlison’s characteristic aggression and tenacity are seen as decisive factors in the minds of some players.

The South American hothead has been hit with an FA charge for hurling a smoke bomb into the crowd at Goodison Park least season in celebration at scoring against Chelsea.

Richarlison, 25, has made it clear to Everton boss Frank Lampard that he wants out with two years left on his contract.

He scored 11 goals in a team struggling against relegation last season but it’s his devilish personality that appeals most to some in the Chelsea camp.

Winger Sterling is another on Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel’s radar as he ponders his future at Manchester City with a year left on his deal.

Tuchel is now hoping to get more active in the transfer market with Lukau off his payroll.

The striker is taking a pay cut to return to Italy but Chelsea will still save around £325K a week from having him off the books.

Barcelona’s Dembele is also on the list of potential signings but his wages are proving a tough obstacle to overcome.

The Frenchman is also reluctant to be part of the squad rotation policy at Chelsea after a season of bit-part action in Spain.
