Antonio Conte happy to spend £100m on Lukaku

West Ham want to bring Javier Hernandez back to the Premier League as they strive to bolster their striking options this summer.

Everton could be subjected to a world record offer when it comes to striker Romelu Lukaku, with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte telling the Blues that he wants the Belgium worldwide signed at any cost, as reported by the Telegraph.

According to the same story, the Italian coach is the man responsible for identifying Lukaku as the ideal replacement for Diego Costa and the 24-year-old remains Conte's number one summer target.

Costa has already turned down a move to the Chinese Super League, and is determined to secure a move back to Spain in the form of his old club Atletico Madrid, who are now under a transfer ban which is complicating matters.

It is Conte and not club chiefs who identified Lukaku as the man to replace Costa ahead of Alvaro Morata, Andrea Belotti and others.




According to the Telegraph, his former club Chelsea and Mourinho's Manchester United are believed to be interested in securing his services.

The only problem for Chelsea now, according to BBC journalist Richard Askam is the player's entourage are exhausted of how Chelsea treated Lukaku and prefer he joins Man United.

Despite the club making moves for midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, central defender Antonio Rudiger and left-back Alex Sandro, it is striker Lukaku who is Conte's number one target.

The Red Devils managed just 54 from their 38 league games and finished sixth as a result.
