Chelsea’s summer signing shows no sign of slowing down, with the West London club willing to part company with £140 million before the end of August to land three new players, according to The Sun.
The report states that Antonio Conte’s men want to sign Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli, Thiago Maia from Santos and Romelu Lukaku from Everton.
The Blues have already added Michy Batshuayi and N’Golo Kante to their ranks this summer, with Conte’s side to make their Premier League bow tonight against London rivals West Ham.

The Italian trainer’s desire to sign a new central defender has been well covered in the British press, with Koulibaly a player he is said to admire from his days managing Juventus.
Maia is currently starring for Brazil in the Olympic Games on home soil and is being tipped with a move to one of Europe’s major clubs at the culmination of the tournament.
Lukaku has developed into one of English football’s most-feared strikers since leaving Chelsea for Everton – with the Blues said to be desperate to bring him back to the club before the end of August.
