Chelsea 'to meet Inter Milan chiefs over Andre Onana transfer' as Blues look to replace Mendy and Kepa | The Sun
CHELSEA are ready to meet Inter Milan chiefs over a transfer for Andre Onana.
And Romelu Lukaku's future will be high on the agenda too.
Officials are set to fly to Italy as the Blues begin planning for a summer overhaul.
The Evening Standard say Chelsea want Onana to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga and Edouard Mendy in goal.
Owner Todd Boehly is looking to trim his inflated squad and it's claimed a swap deal involving Lukaku could be on the cards.
And that would allow Kepa and Mendy – who have each failed to assert themselves a No 1 – to depart.

But sixth-placed Inter's woes have been at the other end, with Lukaku missing 18 games through injury.
Lukaku can reportedly stay next year on loan again for the same £7million loan fee and £165,000-a-week wages, roughly half his Chelsea contract, but Boehly may prefer to sell him for good.
Brentford’s David Raya, Borussia Dortmund’s Gregor Kobel and Valencia’s Giorgi Mamardashvili are other keepers being monitored by Chelsea.
