Lukaku is now in Monaco with his agent Pastorello for some ‘technical’ stuff. If there are no other changes, he’ll be in London in the next hours to sign his contract.

There’s no issue or problem with Chelsea – Romelu will be announced as a Chelsea player soon.

Armando Broja

Armando Broja joins Southampton on loan from Chelsea, medical completed today – total agreement reached after five year contract extension signed.

Southampton overtook Udinese in the race for Broja and have secured him for the upcoming season. (Fabrizio Romano)

Chelsea may feel that Broja is better suited for English football and the opportunity to go to Southampton was too sweet to refuse for the club and Broja himself.

Broja will join former Blues Tino Livramento and Dynel Simeu at the Saints.

Broja was granted the loan move because of Lukaku’s imminent arrival from Inter Milan.

Tammy Abraham

Arsenal are ready for Alexandre Lacazette to leave the club and this will mean they have to bring in another striker and Abraham is near the top of that list.

Chelsea are demanding £40m for the 23-year-old and don’t have much interest in loaning Abraham out. (Mirror)

Jose Mourinho officially has asked for Tammy Abraham.

AS Roma are in need of a replacmenet for Edin Dzeko and in the last few hours Mourinho has asked for Tammy Abraham.

Roma consider the £40m asking price a bit excessive and will try and lower it by asking for an initial loan deal with the option to permanently buy him later.

Roma will face a tough challenge from Arsenal who are known as Tammy’s preference. (GFIN)

Roma are close tonight to securing Tammy Abraham.

Roma have offered Chelsea €5m to take Tammy Abraham on loan + option to buy later down the line.

Chelsea would prefer to sell abroad than strengthen a Premier League and London rival. (SkySports)

Tammy Abraham agreeing to go to Roma is the only detail that needs to be finalised and he will join Roma on loan for the upcoming season. (DiMarzio)

Sasa Kalajdzic

It is understood Chelsea have also shown an interest in the Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic, although any move for the Austrian would depend on the departure of Tammy Abraham, who is wanted by Arsenal. (Guardian)

Kenedy , Matt Miazga , Davide Zappacosta , Danny Drinkwater , Tiemoue Bakayoko and Ross Barkley

These 6 Chelsea players have been put on the transfer list by the club. (Nizaar Kinsella)

Trevoh Chalobah

Valencia have emerged as the frontrunners to sign Chelsea’s Trevoh Chalobah on a season-long loan after he excelled in pre-season.

Tuchel is adamant to not sell the 22-year-old and wants him playing regular first team football instead of being a backup for Chelsea. (Nizaar Kinsella)

It is thought that Valencia will be open to playing Chalobah at centre back as this is where Tuchel sees his future at.

Ike Ugbo

Genk are still in talks with Chelsea over signing Ugbo for around £5m but still have not come to an agreement as of yet. (Nizaar Kinsella)

Dujon Sterling

It is likely that Dujon Sterling renews his contract and then be sent on loan. (Nizaar Kinsella)

Jules Kounde

Chelsea will pursue a deal for Kounde after the Lukaku deal is complete.

Sevilla have rejected Chelsea including the likes of Emerson and Kenedy into a deal. (Nizaar Kinsella)
