Chelsea are set to be one of the busiest clubs in the Premier League this summer as they look to close to the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the table. Thomas Tuchel's side came third last term but have plenty of work to do to improve on that position.

Under the ownership of Todd Boehly's consortium, transfer planning can finally get underway and a raft of names have already been linked with moves to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are eager to bolster every position on the pitch for next season while a number of big names could still join Antonio Rudiger out the door. With that in mind, football.london takes a look at the latest rumours from the club.

Gabriel Jesus offer

With Manchester City confirming the signing of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, plenty of speculation has mounted over the future of Gabriel Jesus with Chelsea as well as Arsenal linked with the Brazilian forward.

The Times have reported that the Gunners have made an improved offer to Man City for Jesus and in spite of this new offer not meeting the £50m valuation, it is expected that the eight-time Premier League goalscorer for 2021/22 will move to the Emirates.

Romelu Lukaku bid

One high-profile name who looks likely to leave Chelsea this summer is Romelu Lukaku with the Belgian pushing for a move back to Inter Milan, just one year after re-joining the Blues. Chelsea spent £97 million on his signature last summer and it remains to be seen what they would accept for him this time around.

On Wednesday it was reported by Fabrizio Romano that Inter had seen their opening bid for Lukaku rejected. His report stated that the offer consisted of a £4.2 million loan fee which was swiftly rejected by the Blues. Talks are set to continue this week with the Italian giants now awaiting an asking price.

Robert Lewandowski instruction

Chelsea have been told to sign Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski this summer with the veteran marksman eager to leave the Allianz Arena. He has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona but Shaun Wright-Phillips believes his old club should make a move. Speaking to Genting Casino, Wright-Phillips said:

"Robert Lewandowski would be the perfect replacement for Romelu Lukaku if Lukaku does leave. No matter what team he plays in, he always scores goals. Chelsea would just have to make sure they play to his strengths in order to make it work."
