With news that Antonio Conte no longer wants Spanish striker Diego Costa at Chelsea, the transfer mill is going at a hundred miles an hour now.

They will certainly have to spend big to replace their main man up front. So who can replace the prolific burly attacker?

5Romelu Lukaku, Everton

Romelu Lukaku

The most likely candidate to replace Costa is the 24-year-old Belgian, and he is expected to complete his return to London in the coming weeks.

He is wretched at Everton and has failed to agree on a new contract with the Merseyside club due to the fact he wants to play in the Champions League in the forthcoming season.

He would be a great addition to the squad as he is strong in possession, a handful for defenders and lethal in front of goal. Having finished the season with 25 Premier League goals, five more than Costa, it would make sense to sign him.

If a move does materialise, it will be a real test of the striker who has been stating for several seasons that he is ready for the step up. With the form Lukaku has shown at West Brom and Everton he looks more than capable of making a move to a bigger side.
