Mysterious Chelsea signing!

Ok, so Chelsea have a mystery signing who will be unveiled in early July (as first reported by emo in all transfer rumours)

Who do you guys think will be Chelseas surprise signing on July 1?

I'm tempted to say it's Lukaku. He seems certain to leave and Everton have already gone and spent big, perhaps with the money from the transfer. Also, Lukaku has always wanted to play for Chelsea and Conte could have sent the message to Costa as he knew the Lukaku deal was done. The reason they were keeping it a secret for now is because they wanted it to seem like Costa was still needed by the club, so they could negotiate a high selling price for him. Also, because it's such a big signing they want to unveil it properly.
The only reason it might not be him is the apparent row between Conte and the board over spending power and lack of signings. However, the row could actually more be because of the infamous text.

Other contenders?
It could be Bakayoko, Cabellero or someone we never expected!

You guys need a backup keeper...could be that.

I feel like Everton would be crying a bit more, but they have spent over 53M so far this window, and it's safe to say they're doing that with Lukaku money, so could be that one too.

Pretty sure it's Caballero. We've got two Willys, I just don't think you understand.

Anyways, I've read somewhere that Chelsea are waiting to announce transfers until our contract with Adidas expires on June 30 because they don't want to upset Nike by publishing photos of new players posing with old Adidas shirts. I now choose to believe this while I'm desperately waiting in a dark room for some summer transfer activity.

I reckon it's Cabellero because he would be the easiest to sign. I doubt Lukaku as Chelsea are still looking for strikers according to rumours.

Why wait if its Cabellero though? I mean, its not like it should be a complicated transfer, wasn't he released already?

@Chelsea8 I know, I think you guy will manage to get him but I don't think he will be your first signing. Cause if he was, Juventus wouldn't send report like they refused Chelsea's offer.

Has anyone actually heard rumours about us targetting a RWB (except for Atalantas Conti)? Seems a bit concerning to me.

@juanmata i think conte is targeting a centre back to push azpi to the rwb role.

Azpi at RWB? Didn't play that well there last season

meh, I don't really like Azpi as a wing back, especially on the attacking side of things. There's something that Conte said about him that has really stuck with me throughout the season. His exact words were:

Azpi is incredible in his new role - one of the best in the world in this role. Also Moses - to run with this quality. Fantastic.

Surely he wouldn't have emphasized this twice if he primarily considered him to be a RWB.

@JuanMata10 Not sure mate, maybe they will give a academy player or Conte think Moses don't even need a backup... Propably just that finding a better LB is the prioty for Chelsea as Marcos is sometime too slow. Propably gonna target someone but it might not be an huge upgrade sadly. :(

@Emo @Once: Yeah, I think we're really in need of a RWB. But there's genuinely no near-worldclass RWB who I can think of firstly and who would be willing to come to Chelsea instead of, say Barcelona, Real, Bayern, secondly.

@OnceABlue Sandro should be the man for LWB back though, that guys is fast and one of the best in the world at his position, both in defense and in offense. Chelsea seem to have make him their priority.

@JuanMata Yep, gonna have to take somebody who is simply decent there. Maybe that Nelson Semedo guy?
