Despite Nicolas Jackson and Christopher Nkunku costing the Blues roughly £85 million each and having a strong preseason, Mauricio Pochettino did not rule out the possibility of bringing in a third attacking player when questioned on Sunday.
Lukaku does not have a future at Stamford Bridge and prefers a transfer to Juventus, who are prepared to sign the Belgian, but Chelsea are wary of a deal that would also need them to fork out a sizable sum of money.

Levi Colwill and Moises Caicedo are the first two players that Chelsea and the Seagulls have discussed this summer.
With center-back Colwill, Chelsea has finally reached an agreement in principle on a new deal. The 20-year-old defender is satisfied with the conditions given to him and is likely to accept a six-year contract.
Colwill had reservations about not being involved in the upcoming season, but face-to-face conversations with Mauricio Pochettino allayed those fears.
Axel Disasi of Monaco and Lesley Ugochukwu of Rennes are slated to be introduced by the Blues as fresh additions in the upcoming days.
